Just got my first WBB loco, BL-2, after a lot of Bachmann On30.  Happy with the detail and features for the money.  Two minor detaiils I would like to address however.

1.  Paint is great except too shiny - is the paint compatible with Testors dullcoat or is there another suggestion?

2.  Marker lights are great on a loco of this price range, but - all four are red.  Does  anyone know a source for similar sized marker lenses that are green?

Just did the series wiring change, hopefully the horn will work at less than 100 scale mph now.  I may install an MCR sound unit and it also requires a fair minumum voltage.

Did some digging and now understand that having all red or green and red glowing all the time or even with direction are not the correct use of marker or classification lights.  I will leave them alone, no need to change the front ones to green (unless I plan to run trains that are split up into more than one unit...)
