Reecnt Release FVM GEVOs: whiter LEDs ???

For those of you who have received the latest-issue FVM GEVOs (heritage or NS Stealth for example), are the headlights and ditch lights brighter than the earleir issues with the dimmer, yellower LEDs?

I have replaced those earlier LEDs to improve the brightness but I am out of white LEDs and want to know if I need to order some more.

Thanks,
Bill McBride

Thanks!

I had emailed Matt at FVM a while ago about the LEDs in the forthcoming GP60Ms and he confirmed they would be white.

my NKP unit has bright ditch lights, my Conrail unit dose not, I am guessing there is an issue with the light tube, but have not spent any time on it, they don't even have DCC yet. They are both a great improvement on the old units, now relegated to 2nd unit status with the lights off.
Your layouts nice, but it needs more Conrail !
