Reply to "LCRX led light problem"

It's not that they won't work Dave, it's just that you need a resistive load for the triac on the R2LC or LCRX to trigger and light the light.  The bulbs you put into your 711 already have the diode and resistor that is also needed to run LED's off the 12V coming from the Lionel lighting circuit.  So, you need the series resistor and diode to protect against excess current and reverse voltage, and you need the other load resistor to trigger the triac properly with the LED.
