HO P2K GP18, install DCC and sound

It has been too long and I need to catch up!! This is an engine that I installed sound into back in August of last year. Wow, how time flies. It has three parts. Today’s episode deals with product decision, mechanical room evaluations and electrical connections for rail pickup and motor.

Not all installations are simple or expedient. As a mater of course, most of the ones that I do are not easy. Typically I am asked to do what few will attempt or know how to even approach. This particular one could not have been done like this a few years back and even though I have done several (my total count of engines serviced now is well over 1,000) I would have done this differently in years before the sugar cube speaker was available. Enjoy.
