another option ...which is really pre-DCC era...and first advocated by US modellers....is to create a diode bridge the purpose of which is to allow reduced lighting voltages..........with a view to near-as-dammit constant lighting?

I have hard copy articles from the likes of Model Railroader giving details.......it used the principles of a diode using around 1.5 volts.....

these used GOW bulbs [in the ones I did years ago]....so LED's might prove an easier option?

why not power them via a small battery, to have true constant lighting? Switches activated by traction power/polarity would not be too hard an option to invent???
