Here's a progress photo of an Aristo center cab kit bash into a traction steeple cab.  Still working on truck sideframes. Need to get diamond plate for the deck and make some handrails.  And of course Rustoleum has quit making Claret Wine -- the road's official color. But thanks to the wonders of the Internets, I did find a hardware store than still has it in stock. Ordered 2 cans while I had the chance.

Looks really good. Any chance you could actually power the unit using the pantograph and over head wires? Later RJD

There are a pair of DPDT switches under the floor. Gives me the option of running straight rail, or trolley, or - gasp - battery! About 30 minutes after I posted, the hardware store let me know the paint was in, and the LHS said they'd just gotten the diamond plate. Sounds like a parts run tomorrow!!
