OASIS Layout Update - Layout Lighting 1

Testing out layout lighting with some "el cheapo" LED light fixtures on the left side of layout. There are some dark spots visible, even with the room lights on. Cast shadows from the valance are noticeable with the room lighting on, and the dark spots are still noticeable with them off. Looks like longer LED light bars are needed.

Until next time


  1. Amazing what LED lighting strips have done for the hobby. Check out these High-density LED lights. they seem pretty decent.

    1. Thanks for the recommendation! There are so many to choose from, and it's difficult to make a choice. Truly appreciated, Matt!

    2. Thank Joe Fugate. He's been exploring LED light strips lately. The High-density ones seem to provide the most evenly distributed lighting, though I dont know how intense they might be if they are mounted close to the layout surface.
