How bright are KATO lighted switches? (29-653)


Recommended Posts

While I was casually browsing KATO items, I found to my surprise that KATO sells #6 switches with indicator lights.




Does anybody own these? How bright are the lights? I assume it is powered through the tracks?


Bonus points for videos/pictures of these tracks in action.


Thanks all!

Sorry to answer this post more than a year later. Hadn't seen it before. I don't have the lighted switches. I wasn't aware they even existed. However, if the lights are too bright, a dab of paint on top of them should knock down the intensity without having to go through the work of opening up the switch to add a resistor to reduce power to the LED (I assume it is an LED light).
