I'm building a starter set, and I just picked up a few beautiful K-Line heavyweight passenger cars. I noticed that the doors open. Is there a way to automate this?

Thanks!

Probably more than one way. You might be able to use a post war operating box car mechanism over an uncoupling track. More sophisticated and expensive use an ERR mini commander to drive a micro gearmotor. Go to youtube and search on Laurie Mclean model railroad. He has a lot of examples. Here is one.

Laurie showed me how to do the swinging bell. Lionel gave me the tool. I love animations and hope to do a few more including the fireman shoveling coal and the conductor swinging the lantern.
