Roundhouse lights

The kit comes with bases for lights, but not bulbs. For the interior lights I installed 12V grains of rice from MicroMark. I wanted the warm glow of incandescent lights on the inside, since there will be some cool white lights on the outside lighting up the Lokstation area. I wanted only one, or at most two connections for lights inside the roundhouse. The leads on the bulbs were too short to reach all the way to the rear wall, so I extended them with magnet wire reaped from the motor of a broken kitchen appliance Pascal and I took apart a while ago.

Lights installed. The magnet wire runs along the roof trusses.

Night time.

Ready for installation on the layout
