I just finished a six diode constant intensity directional lighting
circuit for an Atlas S-4. The cab light needed to be lit up, and I
figured I could make it work better than my Bachman 70 tonners if it was
constant intensity. That part works fine, but I hoped that by leaving
the original headlight in as an extra "ballast" the lights would turn on
before the engine moved, but the motor is too good for that, I guess.
Is there a way to use a resistor in the circuit somewhere to get the
lights on before the motor turns?
