Those are neat. It would also be nice to have a tab molded into the bottom of the HC, to attach a lanyard. Lee Nicolas uses lanyards on his layout.

Here is a thread on lanyards for the HC. I still have a few left.

Bill had eye hooks for awhile, but I donít think he has them now. The parts are probably available.
Here is a simple holder I built for the layout.

Thanks for that, maybe someone will benefit from my experience. I'll add that I shrouded the headlight in heatshrink, cuts down on light leaks. The Intermountain chassis also includes spaces for bulbs/LEDs to illuminate the class lights and numberboards, when the time comes. I'll likely add a backup light, since my railroad had them on F units, over the rear door. I had to email Intermountain for the programming on the lightboard pins, Lee Ryan was most helpful.

Sharing this, an LM-3S in an HO 8-pin DCC-ready Intermountain F3. I first tore down and cleaned up the drive components, a process which is essential for most efficient performance, since I acquired this loco second-hand. Stiff pickup wires caused the original trucks to derail -- a known issue -- Intermountain provided replacements. I retained the factory light board for plug-in convenience and added a Yelo-Glo Miniatronics LED headlight, mounted on a styrene base that will also support crew figures. The LM is at the rear, with an iPhone 4S mounted on top, and both fit with no frame or shell modifications. I downloaded a generic diesel sound which offers more bass rumble than the ULT 567-16. An older model that's nicely-detailed and a good runner with RailPro.
