Ok guys, I finally took the wraps off of my Addams and have been looking to spice it up a bit... I started looking for something to draw attention to the train and wasn't too pleased with the current offerings:

After quite a bit of digging, I found this one:

I decided to put a light in there to get some interactivity with the gameplay... I was thinking it could flash when the train target got hit. Something like this: (It's less pink, more red in person)

I liked the progress, but the red gets drowned out as the game is being played. So I added even MORE to it!

Which naturally lead to (again RED, not pink, in person):

Trying to fix wonky pictures, but in the meantime, here's my question:

I was thinking that the 'crossing light' could stay on the whole time and the 'train' could FLASH when the train target gets hit.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

mechanical nightmare maybe, what if the crossing light rocked left-right a couple seconds when target hit..
seen quite a few low voltage micro gear motors 150-180 rpm range.

RRXing lights don't stay on so I think it would not look so good.

That's a really good point. Hmm...

Looks good, but a little too complicated. I like it because it's not a pencil sharpener.

I drilled a hole in the headlight of the metal train and then another hole down from the smoke stack. I put a red bead on top of the stack and a white bead on the headlight, both to reflect the light. I added a single white led inside the train. I have not installed it yet, just checked it with batteries. I like the crossing sign idea. How are you connecting the sign? I would be interested how/where you end up hooking these up. Once I get mine installed I'll report back.

I have been thinking awhile to put model steam locomotive with tracks (n scale) above that lane or somewhere. If you hit the target, then it would advance until track ends. At the end I then would somehow make locomotive to reverse (probably with some switch).
