Zmil,

That loco is nearly 40 years old, and is still running.
I guess thats what counts. I have discovered SMD LEDs. More bright, small, can fit them anywhere.But you have to be a micro surgeon to deal with them or have a very good eyesight.

Did you ever try them?

I have been reluctant to try to solder them as you have to be very quick with the soldering iron

...And you can't sneeze when you do it as they will be "gone with the wind "

Zmil,

Here is a bit of tip. My friend who did them for me used double sided tape stuck on his bench and solders them while these tiny LEDs are stuck on to them. Also with a huge table magnifier.
