I am pleased with using LED lights from a XMAS box string of battery operated lights - loads for £1.99 from Home Bargains- they stretch full length and beyond along my Hornby suspension bridge and look well [ lights subdued with some yellow paint].
They have the advantage of -
avoid wiring to my control box
can be switched on/off simply
two 1.5v batteries should last forever.
they can be placed at some distance away without additional wiring
don't need a resistor
don't need much thought [often necessary in my case]]
I have another box of them awaiting inspiration and planning approval.
now this is my question - if I want to use , say, just half a dozen lights for one street can I just cut half a dozen off from the long string of lights? Is it as simple as that - or am I missing something?
I have already sent for two battery boxes with switches [less than than £2 the pair from China] for the LEDs that will be "cut off".
Thank you .
