Dear All

I have a couple of old Marklin M track 5117 points that I want to digitise by a Marklin k83 decoder and incorporate them into my digital layout running with Win digipet.
I want to replace the bulb in the lantern on each point with an Led bulb as they draw to much current. Does anyone know where I can get the Led bulbs or create a diy solution with some other type of Led bulbs from ebay etc.

Many thanks

Andy

There was a fellow selling them on eBay a couple of years ago.. I still have some, but I can't seem to find them on eBay any more.. You could make them but you would need to be soldering a tiny LED to a sMD resistor small enough to stuff inside the bulb base... too hard for me to do..

I don't use the Marklin K83, I use the Viessmann 5211 (I think is the correct number), which allows the use of an external feed.. Have a read of this article from AJC Kids -> https://ajckids.com/blog...211-turnout-decoder-k-83 . Also I connect the turnouts, signals and K84 modules to their own booster so that the track current is not wasted on accessories..

eBay seller tufftuffde (Daniel is his name) sells the Marklin 600000 bulb led replacements.

The leds works fine. i use them in old signals.
In turnouts i have separate the feeding of the bulb from the feeding of the solenoid. This way i can lit them up or off and power trough a separate transformer so power consumption if of no interest.
