      Has anyone tried using the Electro Luminescent lamps? It would be neat
      to use in the coaches for uniform lighting. Small inverter chips are
      available that can easily fit into a Z scale, thanks to their use in
      cell phones they are cheap. Marklin's lighted coach use, quite an
      elaborate arrangement for their light distribution. Just wondering if
      the EL lamps will be better. The EL Lamps come in different colors
      including white. What is making me try this path is the EL lamp can be
      stuck to the roof and painted to look like florescent lights on the
      roof or many incandescent lamps on the roof (visualize it in your
      favorite Z coach). If you have used these lamps any input is
      appreciated. For info on EL lamps check
