I decided that I wanted to put a couple of lighted bridges into this layout while I was working on trying to light this layout for some night races. Each bridge needs to be at least 2.4 meters long for this project. I decided to use 1/4" plywood cut 8 feet long and 8 inches wide and then put some 8 foot long 1 inch x 2 inch strips of wood along the side to form barriers.
It is just wide enough for a piece of SCX track to fit inside.
I purchased a 5 meter roll of 300 LED lights and then proceeded to cut them into 3 LED light strips like in the picture above
I then placed 6 of these LED strips on alternating sides of the bridge barriers as seen above. I also placed 3 strips on the bottom of the bridge to help light up scenery on the layout.
I added some sponsor decals to the outside of the bridge.
12v power supply hooked up to test and see if I wired everything correctly. I did.
Time to install it in the layout and wire it to some power.
Once it finally got dark outside I was able to turn the light's on and see what it looks like lit up on the layout.
