    No ears, lol. However, they actually do have tassels (after a fashion). I started out with autumn corn and then painted it green, so the tops of the plants wind up light tan where they get sliced off the sprues. But given that there are something like 1600 plants in that field (1 of 5 similarly sized fields on my layout), that's about the extent of my ambitions

    A few years ago, I bought a couple of Arnold SW1's when they were BOGOF. With the traction tires, the pickup is not so good, so I decided to see if I could wire them together with a plug. First was to replace the coupler on the cab end with unimates. I took a couple of IC sockets and IC extender to make the plugs. After doing this, these are the best set of switchers running on the layout. They will be to strip and decal for WP.

    I installed a soundtrax non-sound decoder, then on both sides, I fished a piece of wire up through the frame where the truck wire comes up through and soldered them to the pc board. Drilled a hole in the shell, just large enough for the wire, soldered on the pin and socket.
