PRR position light signal

After some time spending on the “best-practice” for assembling the multi-parts head on the PL I came around with a good alteration of the prototype. Photo below shows the last testrun. Tiny SMD 0402 inserted into the lamp holes, and the head glued to the crossarm section. I also managed to get some more detail…

PRR style signals
