Re: power connector clips

Hi Do you mean these?... Link to Hornby pins As suggested, soldering to the outer rail web area or to the rails undersides before track laying is the best method though! :D You forgot the backs of fishplates!

converting leds from 3v to 12v

I have some 3v leds with the correct resistors to allow them to run on 12v. Does it matter whether I connect them to the + or - wire. The wires are not marked so I don't know which Is which. Also is there a right and wrong direction for the resistor to be connected

Sound for my steam loco
