Thank you Pete! The stock Lionel NW2 doesn’t match as the frame is shorter than the MTH NW2 frame the slug is built upon. I am doing a MTH NW2 in PB&NE colors next...
John, I know your thoughts on the more evenly distributed light and I can't say I disagree but looking back on photos from my trip to Strasburg, the car I rode in only had about 5 light fixtures spaced down the length of the car. They were electrified (probably replica?) gas lamp type fixtures. They may have only used that many in the model on purpose to replicate the prototypical lighting locations? Not a great excuse, but perhaps an idea that went into the design while utilizing a general purpose PCB board? Although thinking back on it, I think my older PRR streamlined cars had a lot of open light socket spaces throughout as well before I converted them to LED's...I also note that only half of the LED positions are filled, the PCB actually allows for nine LED's, four of the positions are not populated. It would have been nice to have all the positions populated and simply increase each of the resistors to more evenly distribute the same amount of light.
