I have several of the Proto 2000 S1s. I simply removed all the stuff from the cab and
replaced it with a design of my own that works. You have to modify the lens such
that it will fit into a thinwall aluminum (aluminium) tube. Fix the tube to the
ceiling of the cab and put a Miniatronics or similar 12V 30mA bulb inside.
NOTE: If you are not using DCC you will want to use the 1.5V bulb.
Fish the wires through the cab in the same place that the light bar occupied and
solder them to the lightboard. DCC users will have to modify the lightboard as I
seem to recall that it is not removeable. It is an integral part of the motor
I fitted mine with Digitrax DN121 decoders. The rear light works properly and all is
The model is not user friendly and much care should be used if you are working with a
factory assembled shell.
