Default R/C Install for Aster Hudson - Any suggestions?

Can anyone share their successful installation of R/C for the throttle and reverser for the Aster Hudson? I'd imagine a photo is worth many words.

Gerald,
If we are talking about the Aster NYC Hudson, which was gas fired, if I recall there was no blower.
The throttle is in the middle above the gas poker, so it may be difficult to position the servo.
The johnson bar I think was on the right.
A photo would help and confirmation of which Hudson. NYC, SNCF or JNR?

While RC will work fine on gas-fired locomotives, the cab in the NYC Hudson is very cramped for space. That will make an RC installation very difficult - especially if you try to install more than one servo (throttle). The Pennsylvania K-4 has the same issues, but I seem to remember a single servo installation being done by a member of our fraternity. I don't have any pictures.

This is for the Aster NY Central J1c Hudson.
The install is going well. The tender has a large dry compartment in the front, with plenty of room for the battery and receiver. Only the servos are in the cab. I'll have photos in a few days.
