Well tonight I have spent wiring up my control panel with led's and connectors. Things have not been working as I was expecting, I was trying to match my Mimic panel to the Alpha Central with green/red led's. The trouble is I think its a voltage thing and they do not mix, I could not get a line of green led's to light, I swapped the first green/red led for a green one and hey presto they now all light up. To be honest this is probably better than my original idea, having just a line of green led's showing the route selected is a lot simpler and less confusing to look at so I will go with that. I had decided not to splice the wires and wait for the connectors, so its just as well I did, I would have ended up in a right mess.

Well a bit more experimenting with the led's tonight on the control panel. Not sure if it is what I wanted,I have ordered some more connectors I will wait while they arrive and see what I can come up with.
