Kato 8620 tender lightboard

Recommended Posts

When looking at the mechanics of my new 8620 locomotive, I noticed that the tender seems designed to fit a small lightboard to power the tail light.  Does anyone have an idea what would be the board that might fit into that slot?

That's interesting. I never even considered that there might be an existing light board to fit these rear lights. But I've place LEDs in this position before powered by decoders. 

 

Is there a little groove under the metal bump with the circle below? If so, the same light board that fits the front light of a C62 seems like it would work. 

 

There's a picture of it here.

I'll give it a try!  The d51 board might also work.

The C56 from Kato had a working tender light. The part number is 2020-1G
