A bit cooler today so more work on the lights. I decided it made sense to fit the new light's above the baseboard before stripping it down to do the wiring underneath. I decided the new light's being more yard lights that was the place to use them, so I removed two of the other lights I had fitted at the back. Unfortunately when I removed one of them from between the weigh bridge huts the wires were snagged and came off so not sure if it will work now, there is a bit of wire still hanging. I fitted the other one to the left of the platform steps on the up platform (p2) just after the tunnel leading into the station. I then fitted the 5 yard lights around the goods yard, being very carefull where I drilled the holes, one was very near to my hex juicer so I loosened that before drilling the hole, has it happens it just came out to the side of it so it could remain in the same place. The next job now involves stripping the layout section again,tipping it on its side and then completing the wiring using the supplied resistors, more fun. I need to wire some switches into the supply so I can turn them off. here are a few pics of the lights in there respective locations, i have tried to place them where they would have been needed most.

Looking good Chris, hopefully all of the electrickery will work out satisfactorily.

Blimey, Is that a Mesh computers mouse mat? I had a Mesh computer last century. Very good it was too.

Thanks everyone for the comments, yes @keithbythe sea it is a mesh computers mat, a bit worn out but it lasted longer than the pc I had. It was the first pc I bought and the last I bought, I have built my own ever since. Prior to that I had BBC-B and then a Acorn risc computer, trouble was my friends were playing games like Doom etc and I could not join them so got persuaded into going into PC IBM compatabilty. I think the first one I had from Mesh was a 333mhz, I soon found it was easier to upgrade myself.
