Lighting in Z scale is a world apart from other scales because one could get the
prototypical looks if done right.
Here is a comparison between Marklin and home made park light. I like the uniform
glow vs the spot LED light from Marklin.
I used a EL lamp to light the passenger car. Again the uniform lighting makes it look
realistic when compared to other types of lighting. I tried different intensities and
strangely the low intensity glow looked the best. Next step is to get white EL lights in
with flicker free circuits.
