Abstract:

Learn how to enhance your layout with lighting effects, crossing gates, and simple signals. You'll learn the basics of installing and wiring light bulbs and LEDs, how to iluminate structure interiors and scenes, and add lighted signs. Other projects walk you through building control panels to allow pushbutton or toggle-switch control of turnouts while still allowing control via DCC stationary decoders. You'll also see how adding phone communication and fast clocks can make operating sessions more realistic. --
