Working on switching a five-car MTH set of El Capitan 15-and 16 inch aluminum cars from lamps to LEDs. Also installing a bridge rectifier and capacitor in each to virtually eliminate flicker as the pick-ups encounter inevitable breaks in the track.

I also just shot a new portrait of 5495 with the new LED headlight. I am in love all over again!

I am VERY happy with your LED in my 5495 at right.
Drive-in from the fifties
Replaced the weak lamps in the MTH Mel's Drive-in accessory with over 50 Evan Designs LEDs. The results are dramatic to say the least!

Retro Mel's Drive in
MTH Mel's Drive in retro fitted with Evan Designs LEDs. 51 were required to achieve this result. Styrene boxes built for roof top sign lighting. LEDs also added under the eaves to light the area around the outside.

Thanks, this is an awesome fix.
The MTH board smoked/blew up upon hookup to 14v.
This $3.55 was a great fix and improvement over the original.
As you can see from the video, I am making great use of the nano LED's in my streetlights!
Making a railroad
Unhappy with the welding effect on this Lionel accessory, I used the Evan Designs Welding Kit to bring the scene to life!
Lighted Lionel porthole caboose
A regular customer asked me to upgrade the original single-bulb incandescent light in this post-war Lionel porthole caboose. Six LEDs, one capacitor, one bridge rectifier and four diodes later, it should be good to go for the rest of its life!
this is a sparking effect using 3mm cool white bulbs.
An upgrade is underway on the Winter layout,one of four at historic Edgerton Model Railroad Room in Rochester, NY. Owned by the city, it is maintained, upgraded and operated by an all-volunteer club of which I am a part. This lighthouse is to be installed as part of that Winter layout facelift.
I volunteer at Edgerton as part of the crew that operates, maintains and upgrades the 4 layouts owned by the city here in Rochester, NY. Blinking conventional lamps in passenger cars drive me nuts! With this fix, there are no more blinks.

Returned from the UP of Michigan Friday and finished the firehouse.

Diorama built from scratch to try and depict a wet environment, using resin for water and wet streaking, and for reflections off of wet surfaces, using Evan Design's flickering blue LED.
An old Marx 490 locomotive I repaired and when it came to installing a light bulb I went with your 5mm LED. A couple wraps of electrical tape to snug the LED in the light portal and one lead under the brush plate mounting nut and the other I drilled and tapped into the original bulb socket. I love how it looks!
Star drive-in sign
Since I normally concentrate on lighting 1/43rd scale vehicles for layouts, this is a bit off my beaten track. Turned out okay, though!
The owner of this car wondered why Lionel didn't put a rear facing red light on this observation car from the Polar Express. Thanks to Evan Design, and after about 90-minutes working on it, I was able to make it happen. Caution: these cars are tricky to disassemble! The "How-To" for that was found on the web.
Main Street on the Fall layout
A "night time" view of the Main Street on the Fall layout at Edgerton Model Railroad Room, Rochester, NY. All lighting, with the exception of Mel's Diner and the service station, was done with Evan Designs LEDs. Those two accessories will soon also get the treatment. I've added so many LEDs to this layout, we have had to install 4 power supplies dedicated just to them!
I have just posted a video on youtube. The video is of the forest fire scene at the Greeley Freight Station Museum. This scene uses 6 Evan Designs fire kits and several Evan Design blinking LEDs on vehicles.
Dracula from the train
I'm having a lot of fun electrifying Pinecrest, the town on my garden railroad. The lights look great, especially the Halloween Carnival and the flaming haunted house. Scary!
Refinery in the distance
Quick note to tell you how much I appreciate your 3v smd's. I used 50 of them and your 3v power for the attached scene. The refinery is nowhere near complete but still looks good. Needs more lights!
This refinery is N scale, and is part of the Southern New Mexico N Scalers layout in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
I thought you might be interested to see this project. Thanks again for the great products.
