    I assume seeing as Don is asking me it would be about an engine that I made, I've never made an FP7Am.

      My mistake I searched for ONR in Early Car Body Diesels. But search for "charland" in Early Car Body gets "No file found". Search in Diesel Locomotives only finds a CP set and an Amtrak. Found OR ONR62 Power2 in OR Locomotives. Will look at the lights when it gets downloaded.

        Looking at ENG file ONR_1502.eng. I do not find a Light section for the following condition:
        Cone Sphere of Light Type ( 1 )
        ENG is at front of consist. Unit ( 2 )
        Head light Bright (H button twice). Headlight ( 3 )
        So then the display remains at condition:
        Type ( 1 )
        Unit ( 2 )
        Headlight ( 2 ) or Dim which defined

          Specifically I am referring to ONR 1301 to start. One press of "H" turns the forward light to Dim, hitting H a second time turns it OFF!
          Same thing on ONR 1506mu, it turns off when hit a second time which should illuminate a brighter light cone.
          Little things in a great Route with Great Activities.
          Charles, I have the 3DTS F-Units in my files, I use their cabs in some other units, could I transplant the Lighting Section of one to these locos?

            Hi Charles,

            I just search for "charland" and all my stuff comes up.

            OK, just set up a test for 1506mu and the first time I hit H the front glow light (headlight) turns on and the cone of light turns on (the red marker light also come on at the rear, they were also used as helpers our of North Bay). When I hit the H a second time, the front glow light and light cone turn off along with the rear red marker light and the rear headlight turns on along with the rear cone of light.

            I think I've been doing my lights the same for the last decade for road switching, dim is front and high is back. I was a little surprised when I did the two sets of engines for the ONR. Then I had two units together and was doing a reverse movement with the two at night, the headlight of the trailing unit didn't come on. I though the DAR SWs were working when mu'ed.

              Just in case anyone out there is curious, the "mu" after the FP's number is for nose mu, some units were built without it and can only be used at the end of a lashup.
