We recently installed whisker tracks to the roundhouse.  Each individual track will be wired to a toggle switch and to Atlas Block on a control board.  The plan is to have a Green LED light to show that whisker is live.

Can that LED be installed between the Toggle and the whisker track?

Here is another alternative.  These track power indicator lights can be integrated into the track bumper.  These light poles can be purchased from a number of suppliers- these are from ebay and a seller named wehonest, yes, that is the name you can search.   If you do something like this you will need to include a resistor to make sure the LED receives the correct voltage and current.  Here is one of many possible links to a calculator for that.  All the wiring and resistor are located under the layout.

Here are the markers with the whisker track numbered.  I should have turned them on.


Here is mission control to turn on the desired whisker track.  "table" powers the track on the table and "turn" controls the rotation


A better shot of one of the led light poles.
