Nigel: Got my BLI A yesterday, it was waiting for me at the front door when I got home from work. It is a great train. Looking forward to getting it on the track.

Yup, got one myself a few weeks ago. I'm having a blast with it! It brings back a lot of memories of visiting my grandparents and great-grandmother in southern West Virginia; the N&W main line ran between their houses.

However, since installing a Seuthe smoke unit in my Class A 2-6-6-4 I have been "blowing" front light bulbs whenever I blow the whistle. I *think* I have things sorted out now (insulation problem with the Seuthe unit), but I'd like to be sure before plugging another bulb in: I'd like to check to see what voltage the bulb is seeing using my digital multimeter first. (Note that I am operating using conventional DC using a MRC Tech 4 powerpack.)

What voltage should the forward bulb be seeing (1) in neutral and (2) in forward, and (3) when blowing the whistle? Also, does anyone know the specs for the bulb BLI uses for the headlight?

Thanks!
