The upgrade is very easy and straightforward. The LED strip comes on a roll sold on Amazon. The LED strip can be cut to any length needed at the cut marks. The strips have Solder points at each cut mark. I removed all the Lionel light bulbs and solder two wires to one of the lamp sockets. I keep polarity with the track hot as positive and the negative as body ground. The two wires that come direct from the pickup rollers each get a 330 ohm resistor, this protects the LED’s that are rated at 12V. The body ground wire has a 150 ohm place on it.

very simple and the strip lighting is great.

these are the strips on Amazon:

Warm White LED Strip Light, Dimmable 3000K LED Light Strip Warm White, Super Bright LED Tape Light, for Bedroom, Kitchen, Closet, Cabinet, Vanity Mirror, Indoor Only, CT Capetronix(Dimmer Included).
