A bit of an elaborate project, for me at least.
Not mentioned earlier is that I also glued some transparent plastic inside each coach at both ends for windows.
If I was to do it again I would consider using SMD type LED's and work out a better way to hold the wiring and componants so the blooming roof would fit back properly. :roll:

After closer inspection I think it's these end wires that are causing the roof not to clip back in place properly.

I think by using slightly longer black and red wires I won't need to go over the middle plastic. Instead by going around the end wall, this would lower the wiring enough to clear the roof.
I'm not sure yet if the LED at the other end may need to do something similar but trying to twist the legs about I accidently snapped off the lighting bar from that end of the seating piece so it's now regluing. :roll:
I'm also not sure about that light leakage at the ends of the coaches and the toilet compartment. Something may have to be done about that.
Thanks

It's always always difficult to tell from a photo, but I think they look a little bright. You could add another resistor to the supply and reduce the brightness, it would also help with the light bleed.
