I just installed 10 of them in Athearn heavyweights with very little modification. Used 6 wheel Walthers trucks with the screws attached for easy hook-up. I am now ordering more. well worth the investment. They look great with the constant light. also very very easy to hookup red flasher in the observation cars.

Astoundingly Excellent

I bought one each of the HO and N passenger car lighting boards to test. Put the HO board in a Walthers 932-6004 Amtrak Amfleet Coach. Soldered the leads to the metal leaves that hold the wheels in place. Only minor annoyance was your instructions don't point at the lead locations on the board in the photos, which are also pretty blurry, so it took some bright light and magnifying glasses to hunt them down. I finally found T+ and T- adjacent to the capacitors. Used some spare foam to make columns to wedge the board against the ceiling. The lighting is diffuse with absolutely ZERO flickering. Best I've ever seen. Now I'll order more.

Outstanding!! I placed three of them in Walthers cars and was able to match the intensity to the same level as my Kato lighted cars. I did have to remove the Walthers contacts, as they were worthless. Instead, I soldered the phosphor wire to the boards and ran them underneath the cars, as described for the Kato conversion. It's a nice light, easily adjustable, NO FLICKER and sure beats the heck out of batteries!
