Model Rail (UK) - - WORKBENCH -

The Just Plug Light­ing Sys­tem from Wood­land Scen­ics wins be­cause not only do the com­po­nent parts - as the name sug­gests - just plug to­gether, but you can con­trol the bright­ness of in­di­vid­ual lights. It’s a mod­u­lar sys­tem that can be ex­panded, it’s com­pat­i­ble with both DC and DCC and it’s suit­able for any scale, with the street lights us­ing LEDS. Straight out of the box, it’s pos­si­ble to in­stall three Just Plug street lights in un­der an hour. The in­struc­tions are very easy to fol­low and a cen­tral con­trol unit called the Light Hub (WJP5701, £14.75), is well la­belled and al­most fool­proof in op­er­a­tion. Some of the lamp­posts are rather too chunky for my lik­ing, but over­all it is a great prod­uct for be­gin­ners. The length of the ca­ble to each light is 91cm, the long­est in this sur­vey.

Ease of use: 10/10 Re­al­ism: 6/10 Value for money: 5/10 OVER­ALL RAT­ING: 7/10
