    What time of day is it on your layout? Do you run a night-time train with all the lights down?

    For me, it will always be daytime, as the modular club generally sets up in a hll with all the lights on. There is no provision for darkening individual modules, in part because they don't have built-in lighting.

    I am always messing with lighting to see what looks best for the particular shoot, dawn noon, dusk, whatever. Other than that it is normally day time

    It's early afternoon on my layout, but every now & then, operations run into the night, and the lights come on...

    1:43 PM..every day! :) Seriously its always daylight time on my layout since I haven't installed any lights in my structures and some of my locos don't have working headlights yet! Could be dangerous in the dark!

    Well, I don't know about our club but when I build my layout it will be what ever time of day or weather conditions it is currently outside because of windows. Weather it be bright and sunny to daylight with heavy rain clouds and the same for night time. Natural lighting I think is best because it gives you more choice's and opens more options on how you can operate.

    Early afternoon, but one of these days we'll be able to go into evening and night time. I have the lights but just can't seem to work myself up to installing them in all the structures around the layout. :D

    I tried the lighting the building thing and found too many projects held up for too long waiting for an ever increasing amount of lights on an ever decreasing budget...so, it's always afternoon in Selbyville on the B&MC.:thumb:
