    I wish this wasn't so hard to find, so many of those "N Scale" lights you find from china are absolutely not even close to N. Just making the pole shorter on an already bulky HO light doesn't cut it.

    Can't believe I forgot to share these pictures here! They're not fixed in place yet so rotate freely as the wires pull on them, but this is the first time anything's lit up on the layout....

    The real question is what sort of turnouts are you planning on using? If you're using atlas I'd go ME, if you're using peco, you'll need to fuss with transition joiners between everything.

    This is why we should use mechanical batteries of some sort, like a wound up elastic band inside the loco.

    I have only dabbled in hand laying but Pliobond works super well. It's also very forgiving because heat will loosen it, so hit the track with a soldering iron and it will unstick, but then dry again...

    Looks great, I wish I could source cheap thin MDF like that here. So many of the sources I find end up all being in the UK. Don't know why it's so rare over here.
