    Default Woodland Scenics "Just Plug" lighted vehicles

    I ordered one of these just because I wanted the specific pickup truck (and not realizing it came with preinstalled LED lighting). But once I got it I figured, what the heck, let's hook it up to my 12V lighting circuit and see what happens. And I'll tell ya what, these things pump out some serious photons

    Yeah, I love them.




    Unfortunately, once you start, you can't stop.

    I've since added itty biddy lights to a few other CMW cars and trucks.

    Hey @Ender your town looks great can you tell me the width between your sidewalks on your street. I am in the process of laying out my streets and parking and yours is exactly what I am aiming for.

    Looks fantastic, Ender. And I know exactly what you mean about not being able to stop - I'm already thinking about finding places to add a couple more.

    I think the trick for me is to keep the lit vehicles off of the main drag - 'cuz if you do one there, you pretty much have to do them all

    Wow, these things are impressive ... is there a way to turn the lights on and off or are they on constantly?

    If you get the full-blown WS light control system you can do pretty much anything. On my layout they're just on or off.
