8 Track Lights

Hard lessons were learned during the construction of the first AT&SG RR. Installing lighting above a finished railroad is not easy and not wise. So this time the maintenance crew installed track lights before beginning construction. An added advantage is that it is much easier to see during construction when there is adequate lighting. Each section of the railroad is lit with a row of 6 lamps. The bulbs are compact reflector fluorescent (CFL) low wattage bulbs which save considerably on power. A whole track of 6 lamps is only 75 watts. These light provide plenty of sunshine.
