    Finally got the ABA set done electrically.
    Had to go back and fix a light bleed issue, 3 coats of canopy glue and a small piece of aluminum foil over each number light later

    i also redid the GS4 and got the plate completely straight and the Kristal Kleer lens completely flush and flat.
    I also got rid of one joint which improved the lumens, though it makes it harder to disassemble and reassemble now.
    Looks a lot better.

    Something occurred to me, I use CRC 2-20 on my tracks, although I haven't used it on the turnout, but I have ran rolling stock on the turnout that has been run on CRC cleaned rails. Maybe running my finger on the rail accumulated some of the 2-20. I don't think it was the cause of the burn on my finger, but maybe it was a contributing factor.

    That could very well be. I know that before working high voltage hot (7,200 volts) I always made certain the rubber insulating blankets and other safety features were clean - ABSOLUTELY CLEAN - before drilling a hot buss or other hot work. The CRC could certainly help bridge that tiny gap.

    I would suspect the CFC 2-220 is what burned... on your finger.

    For comparison, I used to have twin 650cca 12 v batteries in my mgb, and I’d pull them out thru the unzipped back window with vice grips on the terminals and sweaty hands and never more than a tingle in the chest.
    Thats about 1300 amps at 12v for comparison to your 2.

    Tried the "quarter" test and it did not work, so I dropped feeders before and after the turnout. Quarter test works now. Next train through detailed and tripped the circuit breaker. I'm glad I put those feeders in!

    Rainy day so made a jig to cut 1/8" Evergreen angle to cover those ugly weights at the bottom of Atlas's 3-bay hoppers.

    I won't be making the transverse angles seen in MTL's hopper, 2nd from top, as I need about 50 of these.

    Now I have to find a flat black with matching texture so the weathering will go on evenly.
