Lighted Track Bumpersgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Wiring for DCC : One Thread
I am converting my HO layout to DCC. I have several lighted track bumpers existing on my layout that receive their DC power from the track. Can these lighted track bumpers be used with DCC or should I make the lights inoperative?

Thomas, they can be used with DCC but since the track voltage is higher than you would normally ever have on DC, you will need to put a suitable resistor in series with the bulb so that it does not burn out. Dale.
