Woodland Scenics lighting on Buss?

I have a Woodland Scenics station that is wired for lighting.  Can I splice the wires on my Digitrax track buss?

I think that is designed to be wired to their plug and play lighting system, not a DCC system.

They need the same sort of power that LEDs use. I have one hooked up to a light-it decoder and that works well. You could use a higher voltage and a resistor, probably, but you would need to play with the values to make sure you don't blow the bulb.
