What patch are you referring to?
The brake wheel on the long hood is covered with a 1/16 styrene door as are several of the louver openings that are not on a SD 60.
If tou mean fitting the cab to the frame , It s drop-in just made new screw holes to keep it in place.
Side frames were a direct swap out with mounts. Both are USA Trains.
I hope i answered your question.

Well Richard, I'm glad to hear that Robby will not be discriminating due to sexual orientation!

Seriously, you are to be commended for taking on such a huge challenge. I am wondering if the square footage of the roof is more like 2500 sq ft in lieu of 800 SF.. Larry [The New Old Man from NM]

I'm considering a 24 volt, 10 amp, 240 watt for around $50.00. However, I found two other of these units on E-bay. Both were $100.00 +. One is 24 volts, 13 amp, 320 watt and the other is 24 volt 14.6 amp 350 watt unit. Is the extra wattage necessary? I did learn from some knowledgeable members that I would want to lower the track volts to 18 on any of these units with a voltmeter I'm guessing (?). I would like to know what people are using for DCC power sources. Thanks for any advice-Phil Nymark less

Now that I am running my shop on a fulltime basis I will offer programs to protect your investment when there is out of stock or out of production hi-tech items. If you choose to buy from me I will provide a buyers satisfaction for 12 months. This will cover the standard warranty, excluding damage, 50% trade in value towards the next model/replacement version or any item of same or higher dollar value in the shop.
I am just as frustrated as everyone with the possibility of losing your investment. These are long term purchases to enjoy our trains. I am now in the position to facilitate solutions. In Bruce's example I would break up a set to fulfill my customers need. I will post more info on my RCS of New England page. Don less

a remote for both the g3 and g2. i don't know if i can do this with the g-wire.

BTW: Although I never had the opportunity to know Mik, I greatly appreciate him starting this challenge and everyone else carrying on in his absence. This has been an enjoyable process and I really hate to see it come to an end.
Come to an end. . .Oh no my friend I can tell your hooked. It doesn't end you obsess about it for 10 1/2 months agonizing over what the next one will be. Its torture. I might be just a tad obsessed with the challenge.

are there any reasons to stick with one brand as far as rolling stock? I think couplers might be the only reason I can think of off hand. While I am in question mode are there a lot of reasons to go with metal wheels on cars? I should add I am going with 1:29 as my preferred size/scale
From my experience and knowledge I can only tell you to purchase or build whatever you wish to run as it is your railroad. As for couplers most play semi nice to very nice together with the exception of USA trains couplers which play nicely with only USA trains (I'm a big fan of the product as well). There was a very good write up in Garden Railway Magazine a few years back on couplers and I totally agree with the research they printed.
As for going with metal wheels there are a few reasons to do such but the main one would be for better enjoyment and reliability especially outdoors if that is the type of RR you have .
I am no expert and only sharing my experience but I hope this he... less

I will have something to show and "enter" but it won't be where I wanted it to be. Like Dave said Rule #1 applies and we are having fun that's for sure. The best prize is being able to participate.
