Default Traintek USAT drop in boards and led replacement

I don't know how many people remember or have used the Traintek "drop in" boards made for various USAT diesels.





They give you an "Aristo" socket in your USAT diesel.



They aren't cheap, but apparently an option was to purchase a set of "custom" LED replacement boards that would replace the incandescent bulbs for the number boards, headlight, etc.



I have NEVER seen these "LED boards" and there are no pictures on their site. Has ANYONE a picture or can share anything about these boards? I noticed they dropped the prices on the by $5 (!!) and the links to the user installation manuals are all bad (at least the 3 I tried).

These are for a USA GP-38

I have a few in stock, was disappointed that the lighting all had to be changed.

Yes, looks like a full replacement of boards. Too bad they were not available separately, and with some common type of connector. I think he could have marketed those successfully.

With the LEDs so close to the number boards, I wonder how they look. Let me know if they ever become available separately, I would try a set.

Regards, Greg
