That’s what my model is that was posted earlier.
According to the book Erie Builts and H20-44s by David R. Sweetland Withers Publishing p. 48:
“The unit (#2000) was painted in a gray, white, and...
The early Erie builts and the H10-44
Looking to buy a Kato NW2 shell for a project. Road name is unimportant.
The early ConCor Erie Builts used V-Line shells on their own PA chassis.
The V-Line shells can be found on eBay and would be much easier to...
There are three small screws that hold the shell to the sill section accessed from the underside.
Two at the front corners and one in the rear...
I ran a pair of L/L E6s. The original stock dummy coupler worked well after I trimmed back the centering whiskers so it could swing easily. I...
Ngineering is an excellent resource.
Lots of information and excellent products. They’re one of my go-to suppliers.
I’ve always used a separate resistor on each function wire and used the blue common +. I’ve always done it that way and it works well. I just...
The decoder is a TCS M4. I only used three of the functions. (so far)
One is the headlight, the second a Mars light and each use a warm white 0603...
I’ve done several.
I milked material out at the rear of the frame and cut a slot down the middle on top to route the wiring toward the front.
I used some of the Tangent 36”x.537 wheels on some tank cars with MT trucks.
They look great and roll extremely well.

Nicely done and congratulations on your first sound install!
I see you put a resistor on the blue wire feeding the capacitor. I haven’t seen that...
I finished building an Alco HH660.
The chassis is a shortened Atlas S2 with a coreless motor and worms from a Bachmann S4. The trucks, cab and...
I have a couple Atlas packs exactly like that from around 1970. Still have them and they still work.
Nicely done Marty!
I have used the ESU and also TCS. Both are excellent but the ESU is slightly thinner and more flexible.
The retailer listed above is my go-to source.
+1 on the HH 600 & HH660
There were no modifications to the chassis at all. The shell as I remember is designed to be a direct fit and maybe only...
