Thanks Eddie.

What I did was swap the leads to the socket,
and now the lights work in forwards movement.

It's the way the LEDs are prewired into the 'bulb'.
Only one polarity works.

What threw me is, reversing the polarity of the rails,
doesn't change anything,
as I think the lights are wired in after the motor too,
so direction of the motor, is what sets the lights polarity.

Well that's a simple change made a bit more complete.

I think if I want bi-directional lights,
I'll need to add some more LEDs with opposite polarity.

Not impossible, but I was hoping for a simple screw in fix.
Such it the fun of modelling.
