the only thing that I'm unsure about is ,which are the wires that come from the engines optical sensors on the cylinders for the chuff ?. I need to know the color so I can reroute them to the phoenix. sorry if this seems simple to some folks ,but I"am a newbie in the electronics field.

The optical sensors in the K-27 don't work all that well. You are better off to put magnets on the the tender axle and use a reed switch. By the way I'm a revet counter and I gave up and used the read switch method and it works great.

If your loco is too heavy to lift, you'd better be able to ride in, on or behind it.
