Kato SD45

The TSU-AT1000 Atlas light board style Tsunami decoder was selected for this install.

Jerry machined a bit of the weight out of the way to provide a mount for the SP-16x35-08 speaker.


To keep the weight mounted to the roof of the shell, the light pipes were shortened and LEDs (that had had their lenses cut off squarely) were cemented to the shortened light pipes with Faller Expert styrene cement - it leaves an optically correct finish on the styrene! Resistors were used to limit LED current draw.

The capacitor will be tucked into the rounded rear of the loco behind the speaker when the loco is assembled.
