Lighting

What overhead lights or lighting do you guys have over your layouts? Currently I just have a few shop lights over our in progress 22ft X 16 FT layout. Just thinking about down the road what would look good and realistic. Thanks!

on lighting, a string of lights UNDER the layout is not a bad idea. I used a string of rope lights but I'm sure led's would serve. I do it along with fans to keep bugs and mold at bay. A layout can block airflow in a room and mold is an opportunist that likes dark areas that don't have good ventilation...js

I just bought some 5000 lumens LED 4' hanging shop lights from Harbor Freight. Much better than the hodgepodge mes I took down.
