While researching the lights I started to work out how I was going to light these shades when they are suspended on a thin piece of electrical conduit.
As an experiment I have produced the following.
The first photo shows the new Wollar level crossing with a power pole and street light.
I used a surface mount 603 warm white LED with a Tichy lamp shade, some brass wire and some conductive silver paint to get the power to the LED.
It involves conductive silver paint from one contact on the LED out, up and over the shade to the wire conduit and then down the pole to a 1K Ohm resistor and power wire. The brass wire conduit is then coated with super glue and allowed to harden for a day after which the conductive silver paint is painted from the other LED contact out and up over the lamp shade, over the coated wire and down the other side of the pole to power wires under the pole. The power source is 12v DC.
I always was going to light the layout for night operation and this is my second light, the first being the Wollar loco depot yard light. I will slowly add lights around the layout. The more that you think about it the more places you realise that you needs lights for.
The loco shed will be next but I also have to make three smoke flues that aren't included in the kit. luckily there is a plan in the article on Broken Hill Loco Depot in Byways of Steam 7.
Here is a photo of a smoke flue I received from Alex Nadalini. The actual chimney part has been removed as this shed is being torn down (
