    Has anyone installed Atlas Trackside lighting and connected those lights to Woodland Scenics Just Plug In lighting system and if so do you have any recommendations on how best to do this? Thanks

    I don't think it will work, But if you do figure it out, let us know. I use the WS Just Plug system, but I also use their products with it, street, traffic, etc... lights, made by them.

    I buy my street lights from "wehonest" on ebay. Steve is a good guy, fast delivery, low prices and replaces anything that goes bad (I had a couple out of about 50 that did not last long). I just hard wire them to under-table power busses with switches on the control panel for control.

    So it appears you CAN use other lights with the WS Just Plug system. NOTICE, Woodland Scenic's does NOT recommend this as far as I know for I think obvious reasons, SAFETY for one and they want to sell their own to make money :) I had no idea the Linker Plugs already have resistors in them? I probably will still stick with the WS Just Plug products cause I have such a small layout, which 2' x 4'!

    Main thing is be VERY careful. I still don't think they recommend this at all! I'm pretty sure their packaging says so for legal reasons.

    But this guy did it :) He has it so his links won't show, so on YT search for this. Should be obvious it's him?

    Thanks so much for the feedback it is appreciated. Hopefully as technology in this area continues to grow we will be able to use different manufacturers products and one control system. I guess not unlike different decoders in locos.
