Hi Owen

If you are going to add interior ,your have to add lighting as well or you will not see any of it.

I know when i did Torrington station and did not do any lights, Doh!, also you have to have a way to get into the building,if a light fails.

Also do not use grain wheat bulbs,as they get very hot!, know that one to well, when i melted the chimney of the signal box,Doh!.

Cheers Darren,

Its things I'd thought about. I just feel it needs an interior as its going to be right at the front of the layout. I will definatley bear in mind what you said about the grain of wheat bulbs.

Is there anything you'd recomend ?

 

Thanks

Warm white LEDs are quite an economical way to light buildings. Each will need a one kilohm* 1/4 watt resistor in series, if fed from 12 volts DC. The device is polarised and only works one way round - simply reverse the connections. Both are available on eBay.

 

Bulbs run hot and are prone to failure.

 

Try two or more in series if too bright or a lower supply voltage.

Having been working on building models of waiting rooms I have not got any interior detail as it does not show, although I do paint the inside walls a stone or cream colour and the floor a dark grey as white plastic or card does have a habit of showing through the windows, also use inside walls to block strange views through the windows too.
