Yea!
Goodbye JVSS!

I didn't say I was going anywhere!  Smiley

Seriously, just really interested in what was actually done, what color and how bright coach lights should be, and so on.

I'm going to model mine as having Pintsch gas lights.

JV, the wiring's still there on the locos and vintage passenger cars on the EBT, so there's nothing that would prevent them from running the lights off the loco's dynamo tomorrow if they so desired. If memory serves, they have done so at least once or twice since I've been riding the railroad.

Their normal operations are daylight only, so lighting the cars isn't something they do but once or twice a year. The reason they've been using the portable generators lately is because the equipment they usually run on the night trains uses 110v lights; either work lights or strings of Christmas lights wrapped around the railings.

(Note: I'm writing this ignoring the temporary operational hiatus the railroad is currently on.)

Later,
