Oh, just to note also, I used tracing paper to cover the windows, and black paper for some. This is so that when I install lights the tracing paper shows the room is lit, but you can't see the bulb, and the blacked out windows don't light up. I drill or punch holes in the bottom of all my buildings and when everything is in the right place I will run Christmas tree lights (LEDs) underneath the base board, feeding them through the holes where needed and covering any I don't need with black insulation tape. This seemed to me to be the simplest way of lighting inside the buildings without any fiddly wiring. Street lights are a different story, but I do have some very fine LED Christmas lights which might work for that (the kind you're supposed to scrunch up in an artistic fashion and place inside a vase !).
Ive just purchased 3 sets of Christmas LEDs from Hobbycraft in the post Christmas Sale. They are for the buildings in Port Perran. Holes are already drilled. I just have to pop the bulbs up through. No messy electrics just a new battery every now and then. Plus........I can make it look as if each house is having a disco if I want!

Or even the whole town can have a disco with the right setting on the lights !!
