Bracing the roof is done inside.
What Len says, they are there simply to divert water from the roof.

Isn't there supposed to be a vent hatch on top of the roof or is that to modern?

It's a stupid reply from the PSC guy as in "I don't give a sh......"
How can you order a part if you don't know what it looks like.
The parts you received can be modified to look like the ones you wanted by cutting of the door section.
Then it looks like the picture of the 1330-1 part.

I just tried it. There is no power at all to the loco without the tender connected. Not even lights.

I think you will have to do some cross wiring on the locomotive side.
The wiring in the locomotive go through the connectors to the tender and there they are spliced into the decoder via the motherboard.
No wonder that when you try to use the locomotive as a stand-alone nothing happens.

N scale is an international standard , except for Great Britain , They have a different standard for N scale as they have for H0 (00)

N is a international standard, exept GB.
12Volt is 12Volt , As well in English as in German.
So i see no issue.
It's more a non issue.

You will have to get a good overall balans of the boiler furniture and the Cab together.
And when you use oil/gas lamps , loose the steam turbine.

YES!both.
Don't forget that some of those lanterns , especially the very early ones were huge.
The wiseman one is a bit Petit and the PSC one is big.
What i usually do if i am in doubt is to measure and calculate the real size.
That gives you a good impression how big or small something is in the real world.

What I also do when putting parts on a model is to paint them approximately the same colour as the model.
Believe me , it looks much more different than parts of various colours.

Holger,I Just opened one of my 2-6-6-2's with sound and I found the decoder you described.
Just a thought, have a look in the tech manual at CV 30 and CV 15 and 16.
Has to do with locking or unlocking the CV's.

I see no mayor problems converting the roof.
The cab is build up from several layers of thin plywood.
The kit comes in several sheets so you will have plenty of scrap wood left.
And you know old Chinese saying.......measure twice , measure again , cut once Grin
