    Been doing this and that, downsizing my hobby to better fit my lifestyle (no, I'm never quitting the hobby:thumb: ). My N scale layout is now the benefactor of most of my attention, HO being primarily a modeling/club scale for me now.

    My N scale LPBs needed a safer crossing on my layout. I found the original owner had clipped the leads on these pups :rolleyes: and so I had to re-wire them. Using 1.6mm LEDs for light, here's how far I've gotten.

    BTW, the guys at Bakatronics are stellar, this is the flasher circuit I use>>> www.bakatronics.com/sh...itemid=337

    So is this guy for LEDs and flea sized light bulbs>>> search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZdmmwem
