I suppose the proper type of light on a bridge is always on but I had a leftover flashing one and some time to do a little track powered upgrade. I found the key to getting a clean 5mm hole is using a 9/64th brad point drill bit. That plus grinding off two spots on the girder for the "conduit" (aka drinking straw) were the only modifications to the Lionel Bridge.

Very nice work and thanks for the tip on drilling out the plastic component. I also prefer a flasher instead of a steady on beacon. :smilie_daumenpos:

Fred's are on trains?
Lights on bridges?

I like the flashing better too.

I like lights on things, the more the merrier. :)
