|Using the Electric RailRoad's Cruise Commander and Sound Commander in the latest AF/Lionel Baldwin makes this loco a much better performer especially in Yard service.|
|The Cruise Commander's heatsink is modified. It is trimmed down and drilled to mount to the triacs 180 degrees from the original orientation to save space.|
|A spacer is made to mount the heatsink to the chassis using the original Baldwin chassis mounting holes|
|The sound board is mounted with double sided foam tape to a custom bracket.|
|The Sound Board bracket is mounted using the lock
out switch as the fastener. The Reverse unit Lockout switch become the
TMCC program/run switch.
A notch cut was in the heatsink for access to the Cruise Commander's terminals
|The Speaker is mounted in the front of the body at
an angle to create a natural baffle.
The LED lights use a dip header as a connector that mates to a mini Molex connector pigtailed to the Cruise Commander's terminals..
|Golden/White LEDs are substituted for the headlights and are constant brilliance.|
|While not a "scale model" is a nice looking unit that will serve nicely in the yards shuffling cars and with cruise it really has excellent slow speed performance.|
