United Transit Lines trolley

I bought this AHM trolley back in the late '70s. Surprisingly, it still runs today - the best runner of the few locos I have left from that time. The detail is not up to today's standards, but it does have crisp lines and a purposeful look, as well as a certain charm when it's running down the track. Problem is it's DC and I have no intention of trying to convert it to DCC. But, when I was installing the track on the Lost Ocean Line, I put in some extra terminals for running the layout on DC. Basically, the idea was I would have some sort of master switch where I could switch the layout between either pure DCC or pure DC so I could run my old DC equipment. I just need to get the wiring in place.
