"Arcing" effect for Third Rail

Recommended Posts

Here is a quick video showing how I constructed the "arcing" effect for the third rail line. I know a few folks have done this with 3mm - 5mm blue LEDs on YouTube, but those look like an old police car sunk into the ground next to the line. In this video I'm using 2mm pinhole clear white LEDs that can be embedded next to the last rail chair before the end of the third rail section, so its hidden and you get a more realistic flash off the rail itself... Let me know what you think...
