The video was another great one. I just wasn't sure how it's possible to hook up 40 lights to the little woodlands scenic box.  That wasn't clear to me.  I thought you could hook up one light per port.  If someone could explain I'd appreciate your time.

Thank you 





I agree, I would like to see a short discussion on Miles' plug expansion idea. Just picked up a bunch of Just Plug items on deep clearance at my local Hobby Lobby. Plan on using them to light up my steam locomotive terminal. I think I will do some experimenting with adding LEDs to the Pololu plugs and see what happens. Up to 40 lights per Light Hub would be awesome!
