MT,

It appears that no one has developed a circuit that displays green
for no short and red for short. There are probably several reason
for this.
1. If a light bulb is not used to limit a short, DCC boosters shut
down when a short occurs. This would make it hard for a circuit to
know that a short is present.
2. When a short occurs, your trains comes to an abrupt stop. You
don't need a light that tells you have a problem. You will already
know you probably have a short before you look at any light.
3. If you use light bulbs to limit short circuit current, this will
provide you with a short circuit indication.
