Well I got the 20 wired up and running tonight and these are the first photos of it after running all of 50cm back and forth on part of Morpeth. The good people of Morpeth have waited an awfully long time for a 20 class to arrive in town.
I managed to get the loco and body reassembled for their little flight to Sydney over the weekend. Not without a couple more dramas. The rear headlight decided that it wasn’t going to cooperate after working when I first placed it on the track. Probably a loose wire but I don’t really have time to go in and investigate so it will have to wait upon my return home next week. I also ran out of time and couldn’t install the front marker lights so these are still empty shells. However the sound is glorious and bloody loud so I’m happy with my earlier decision to follow John’s advice and cram in the large speaker. It almost parts my hair when I sound the whistle 🙂
