During these few hours I installed a Soundtraxx AT-1000 EMD 645 sound decoder, Soundtraxx Current Keeper, and Railmaster Hobbies DS1425-8 speaker into the freshly painted EMD SD40M-2.
Tonight my son and I finally had the opportunity to program and test out the engine. This is what it's all about - enjoying the layout and hobby with the family. The kid was working the ground on Bay Yards east end observing the new sound coming from MCIS 4059.
I hope to get a little scenery done on this section toward the end of the month.
