          The original color scheme of the S-16 was green, black and white. We chose burgundy, light blue and charcoal gray as our colors for the "Phoenix". We also converted from the original 6 volt electrical system to a state of the art 12 volt system and added enhanced sensors, electronics and monitoring gauges. We upgraded the "quick connect" hose fittings and utilized commercial trailer male/female wiring connections between cars. We added some brass to the engine and a great deal of brass to the tender during our restoration and feel it blends nicely with the original design. The "Phoenix" was completed in late 2000.
