I have my separate power districts wired from my tracks to my control box. The top of the box has a diagram of the layout, with simple on/off toggle switches in the diagram itself (in the middle of the track markings), for turning the power blocks on and off.
Problem is, when looking down at the face of the control box, it ain't so easy, at least at my age, to see whether the toggle is the on or off position, especially when you are distracted by the running trains. I could put those "clamp on" power stations (with the attached green lights) in each track district on the layout itself, to show when the power is on, but those things aren't especially cheap, and I have enough lights out there as it is with the switch lanterns etc.
Has anybody put cheap, low voltage, LED strip lights, on your control diagram itself, that light up when you turn on the power district. If the toggle switch for track power is a two pole switch, it could be used to turn the lights on when you flip the power to On.
Any ideas or experience with this? Low voltage DC lights would be fine. But, the strips would have to be such that you could cut them to different lengths, to place them on the diagram.
Thanks for all info.
