Hey, were you able to resolve the derailing issues of the Kuehn chassis?

It seems to have fixed itself with a little running in.

Grate work CSD! If I am not mistaken... Are the couplers in t-435 attached to the chassis? I know there is not much place but maybe you can fit something like that from Flaishmann to have KKK(Kurzkupplungskinematik). http://www.eurorailhobbies.com/erh_deta ... ck=FL-9574
I am going to use elements above in my T-435 project.
Have you changed anything in the circuit board? Have you used the same leds from V100?

Thanks. I do have a number of LOCO close couplers on order. At a buck each they are a lot more cost friendly and are roughly the same profile as the ones you suggest. On this loco I mounted the coupler boxes from the V100 right on to the trucks. The circuit board is made from scratch and the LED's are new as well. The old circuit board was just to big and to hard to modify. I will take some pictures next time it is disassembled.

Here are a couple shots of the interior for you, clipers! You can see that I built my own circuit board with parts from the electronics shop.

I've got it into my head that I an get a sound decoder to fit into my 437.05 (ex BR 56). The digital plug was moved to the tender to accommodate the larger decoder size. The removal of the circuitry from the front has also made for a better look to the front of the locomotive. The coal bunker, that I chopped out and modified before, has been drilled out and will now house the speaker. The interior weight has yet to be cut out to create more interior room.

Looks really good man. I can't wait to see a vid with sound! Don't forget to seal the speaker well or it will sound anemic.

Will do. I gave it a little test and the sound as is is not too bad for a speaker less than an inch in size. Having it point down into the body seems to improve it slightly. The only thing is that right now it is making generic ESU diesel engine noises as I have not hooked it up to the lok-programmer. One thing that bothers me greatly about the North American sound decoder set up is that they don't have an on/off switch for the motor noise. So unless you cut the power the thing will just sit there and idle. Oh well, the problem will be fixed when I download the new SFX.

Applied the number plates and front details to E499.015. I find that the camera really picks up all the minor imperfections, but to the naked eye the thing doesn't look half bad.
