ACE Electronics has the replacement LED bulbs with all the conversions built into the bulb.  I just received the replacements in the mail and plan to replace the bulbs hopefully this weekend.

Follow my thread "Dem Bulbs""

Fred,

What is wig wag lighting? Is it similar to the flashing ditch lights sequence for grade crossings?

The NS F 3's do not come with any lights at the bottom front just the main head light. I replaced the headlight with a LED setup from Evans design and then drilled out the places at the bottom and put plastic lens in then mount two LEDs in them but it is not wig wag just on all the time. Evans dose sell a wig wag  I think.

Yes wig wag is the same as flashing ditch lights.

Thanks Wyatt!

I was a truck and bus driver for a bit and some really older buses had a wig-wag device that dropped a small stop sign that would swing in front of you at the windshield when the air pressure got too low. Before moving the bus you had to reset the wig-wag device.

Plus at least one or two other things have been called a wig-wag in commercial or industrial usage. I just wanted to clarify what was being said.

there was post on u-tube where someone had C&O F-3s where he drilled out holes on the bottom like you did wyatt but he installed a wig-wag- alternate flashing lights syste. It was really a nice add on and very realistic. He also could change it so the lights were on continuously
