R179 Early Christmas Galore (12/21/16) with R9s & R32 A, Etc.

Call me OCD but I can't be the only one wishing that they had gotten rid of the incandescent headlight bulbs. Even the planes are making the switch to LEDs. They light up much quicker, and have a much brighter output.

The design spec was probably frozen before the light spec could be changed. At any rate, I fully expect the R211s to come in with LED headlights.

 

Remember though that the bulbs do have their merits. The Amtrak guys complain that the LEDs on their new ACS-64s don't heat up much and therefore can't melt snow or ice buildup during the winter.
