Would anyone know of someone that I could pay to change the sounds on a Digitrax SDH164D decoder to Thomas the Tank Engine? Thanks!
DCC lights only decoder and keep alive taped down on the inside of the comet cab car.
Drilled small holes through the weight and the frame to connect to the track pickups, then soldered the wires right to the metal pickups of the trucks. (Make sure the...
I've been working off and on with the U34CH Nose Light. This is what I have so far.
Still a work in progress, but I thought I'd share.
I was able to find a caliper, just waiting for it to come in the mail.
On a side note, I've been working on the comet cab car, and have some pictures.
This is what it looks like so far.
I've been primarily focused on the crappy Walthers trucks...
Awesome! I will have to go and find one. Thanks!
So I've gotten all the suggested pieces in. I was wondering, what do you use to get such fine measurements in point inches? I'm a bit of a perfectionist myself, and I would like to get as close to your suggested measures as I can.
I was able to trim the rear weight off and install the speaker to the frame. Pictures:

Top Down of the U34CH
That's awesome! Thanks for the info! I will have to get the parts in and get started.
Thanks for your help! I will have pictures soon.
Thanks for taking a look!
I plan on using some styrene to create the nose light. Any ideas what size the square should be?
I know that sunrise enterprises made the h-109 NP nose light which is what I'd be copying, but I don't have anything to go off of.
I've installed a Tsunami Decoder in a NJT U34CH and need some help with finding room for a speaker.
I originally thought I could fit a 1 inch round speaker in the cab, but as the picture I have linked shows, there are two weights on the front and...
I'd like to put a nose light on the U34CH. Any one know of any suggestions?
Does anyone know if there are or plan to be a New Jersey Transit RiverLine model available in HO scale? The closest I've found so far is a manufacturer named Piko.
Thanks for the information! I've gone ahead and purchased the horn, bell, and ditch light pieces for the comet cab. Where does the bell go by the way?
I will make sure to post pictures of my progress when I have time.
Also, does anybody have a copy of Railroad Model Craftsman December...
Oh ok. I wonder what it would take to make. They could potentially aid in the pressure and weight of the cars as they are being pushed/pulled.
I figured that was what you were talking about regarding the "springy things". You wouldn't know what those are called would you? Trying to search for more information.
Thanks for the information!
Are these the air horn, ditch lights, and bell that you mentioned?
I'm trying to detail a HO Scale Walters Comet Cab II NJ Transit car, and need help finding decals, lights, and horn details.
