Nice work Jim!
Which Kadee did you use? It is a much neater installation than my 1787s.
I was unable to get the pilots off to remove the return spring bracket.


I used the 820's with a lot of carving on the box and coupler to allow for reverse 1600 curves in my layout. I couldn't get the pilots off either, that's why I decided to cut out the centering spring support to get access to the A-C coupler support.

Jim nice installation.
You may have answered a query I have about the Airwire antenae. Is it ok to have it a little off the absolute vertical?

Rod, all of my installs have the antenae at approximately this angle and I get over 150 feet of control.

Rod, I have one AW install that is horizontal, inside the tender, I still get great reception with it.
