Gladly, Dave    http://www.esu.eu/en/products/interior-lighting-sets/ntt-h0-digital/ They have two shades of LED. The "warm white" is a bit closer to a flourescent look, as the Budd/Canadian would have. The yellow is closer to incandescent. I bought mine from SBS4DCC but I'm sure they're available in Canada. I paid less than $20.US and IMHO that is a steal! 11 LEDs +2 marker lights, a DCC decoder, adjustment pot and an option to add another LED function.

Thanks Ed!

What a neat product!! The price would be about $30.00 Cdn, but that still makes it a bargain IMHO given all the features.

Cheers!!

Dave

Edit:

Better late than never! The end supports are attached to the benchwork. I have to install the connecting beam between the end supports and then I can put it on its wheels and see how rigid it is:

Dave,

Great concept and execution! I would like to see some photos of the mechanisms involved.

I'm in the middle of installing a new lighting buss under my BRVRR layout. Everything seems to be just out of reach or tangled with things I don't want to disturb.

Modifying the whole thing to rotate might be an option to make life easier. 

Again, great work.

Hi Allan,

The mechanisms are simply reasonably heavy duty pivot plates:

I have a thread on the construction of the layout here:

http://cs.trains.com/mrr/f/11/t/281323.aspx

The thread is getting a bit long but it explains the concept and some of the challenges. If you start with the most recent posts you will probably save yourself a lot of reading!

Thanks Dave. Very informative. I'm going to give applying the concept to my layout. I'm getting too old and stiff to crawl under it to make changes and repairs.

Thanks Again.
