If you're not using DCC, most analog controllers have 'accessory' terminals for lights and turnouts that run at a constant 12-16v AC.

If you're using DCC, 'wall warts' are a good alternative, otherwise a used analog controller can be obtained for under $10 on Ebay or at a brick and mortar store that specializes in model trains.
