Thanks, Don. Does it matter which direction the diode faces?

Don’t forget to include a diode to protect the LED strip from reverse voltage. (if it doesn’t already include a rectifier.) Use a single resistor to limit current
Hi! I am investigating the multiple possible methods of lighting coaches/carriages on my HO NCE controlled layout. I have tried Flicker Free, which works fine. I have also built small circuits using miniature rectifiers feeding LED strips.
In order to light my entire collection using any of these methods, a significant investment in time and electronic components would be required. I have tried a small experiment using direct DCC track power to light a short strip of LED lights and found it
worked fine, especially with the addition of a 1K resistor in series in the circuit. Is this approach too simplistic or am I missing something? Any comments appreciated! Thanks in advance,
