Thank you, I bet those work excellent in standard length coaches! Especially if they work anything like ESUs HO sized kits. On the Daylight there are only 4 standard length cars out of 18. 10 are double articulated, the kitchen a triple, and the OBS is effectively short also due to the boat-tail taper and OBS-truction. (I love puns, sorry) With the exception of this car, I’ve been extremely happy with cost ($5 per car for 18 cars) & the evenness and color of light from the kato 214 kit, when properly installed... anyone who says they are uneven has installed them “poorly”. And I want to say, where the light bar IS in this car, I am very happy also! The issue here is the car itself. No matter what kit, you will have this issue. Because of the tapered shape and the large black upper light guide that takes up most of the floor space, the light bar (of any brand) has to be snapped off well short and ends a little more than 1 inch before the end of the car. Add in the huge lightblocking effect of the light guide (there is only a chairs width of space on either side of it, floor to Ceiling), and Businessman Tom there in the first blue seat is the last to get any Illumination at all. See pic below: You can see a bit of Businessman Tom (well illuminated) in the upper left of this shot I took last week after painting and installing the light kit. Daddy (back to camera) gets just a tiny bit of reflected light on his face, and you can see how much room that light guide takes up! It was an accounting based compromise on Kato’s part, (parts reutilization and homogeneity) but in the other cars (even the triple articulated and full length cars) they work exceptionally well and are very very even through the car. No flickering, no dim spots, and very cost effective. My hyperspace motivator was on the fritz this AM after such a long night, but my daughter is 2 today so I have to hurry to finish the fl4... so I can clear the kitchen table for a party later. Have I mentioned recently how incredibly lucky I am to have such a great wife?
