Re: Powering LEDs with track power

Keith Woodbridge

Hi Jim,

You can power an LED direct from the track using a 1k resistor in series but you have to get the polarity right. If it doesn't work first time, just reverse the connections.

This is fine where the track polarity remains constant which is true for most cases. However, if you have any auto reversers of polarity reversing boosters, don't use that particular section of track.

Have fun,
