    Very cool and wonderful picture Shamus, you should send that to Railroad Modeler so everyone can see it and enjoy it.

    Shamus, what's the wattage on those bulbs? I guess they're fairly small for such a long exposure time. (Of course I say this not knowing much about photograhy):) :)

    Hi Scott, Those are just 12volt grain of wheat bulbs, running from a 9 volt transformer. Got around 60 on the layout I tend to bunch them in 20's then run them to a SPST switch, hardly ever have the lot on at once, would drain the poor tranny.
