I would think that if you try to feed them from another fiber, the light loss would be too great. That sort of product works best if you shine the full, bright light from the LED directly into it. I used fibers that way to make searchlight signals on any earlier layout, and arranged things so I could adjust the positioning of the LEDs for maximum brightness.
