Reply to "What did you do on your layout today?"

Today, because I can't leave anything alone, I added some lighting to my Miss Molly's Diner. Neither of Miss Molly's signs were illuminated, so using WS Nano LED warm white light and two WS spotlights, I illumined the signs. Here's the process and compare before and after.

I removed the interior of the diner to access the front lobby and connector board.

The diner already has an extra connector for the WS Nano LED.

Drilled a 3/8" hole to feed the Nano LED into the lobby and up the wall.

Drilled a 1/16" hole into the roof to feed the Nano LED into and glued with CA.

Connected the LED to the extra connector, reinstalled the interior, and plugged the hole with some sticky weather stripping.

Placed Molly's back onto the layout and plugged it in to a WS Just Plug Hub. Here's before and after.
