Wiring up the platform lights: step 2.

It could be a bit of a pest crouching underneath the baseboard to install the wiring for the platform lights so I intend setting up as much as can be done on top and then transferring the whole wiring set up underneath, ready made, so to speak.



The red and black cables will carry 12volts. At intervals, a thinner positive and a negative wire will come from the red and black cables and fee each lamppost. (See diagram above.)

These feeder wires will connect to the main cables by the use of snap lock connectors - episodes of this blog from January 2012 illustrate how these connectors work.

Where my hand is, the on/off switch will be installed to control the lights
