Upgrading Lionel 6-2717 Short Extension Bridge with a FRED

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.

Well Done! There is always room for more LEDs.
