Adding Inductors to eliminate track signal level reductions:

In one case I found that running a long fully lit passenger train (10+ cars) resulted in reduced signal levels when a signal test was run with the lead engine.  I found that adding a small inductor (Choke Coil) on the positive and neg lead wires going to the lights on each car eliminated any change/reduction. (Suggest using a 100uh or greater)  As matter of course, I've since added these inductors on all my passenger cars.
