Albeit in the lockup at the end of the war. Long story but it involved women and wine in Paris!!

It's a noble project you are on.



I love the stories people post. The ANZAC and Canadians were the tip of the spear late in the war. They were also the highest paid, so could get into the most mischief in town.

Jerry, that is nice of you to say. I hope to show different stuff, but, sometimes I need to repeat.

I spent the weekend upping the WD Simplex roster.

This is decoder wiring for a 20HP Model.



I worked on the following.
Painted 5- 20 HP Simplex
Added DCC and Keep alives to 2 - 20 HP simplex
Added DCC to 1 20 HP simplex
Added DC drives to two 20 HP simplex - Waiting on electronics.
Created 3 running dummy 20 HP simplex
Remoter preformed on a German Deutz Locomotive adding 2 fly wheels
Added DCC to a 40 HP BVM Tin Turtle.
rewired an Armored 40 HP Simplex
Worked om an additional 40 HP Protected Simplex.

I have about 8 more Locomotives to start and I will have my entire fleet.

More pictures to follow.

Larry awesome job; that's quite an impressive fleet you have there. How do you cram all of those electronics into a simplex.
