Post Add new switch and light to the end of a 3 way switch

We have 14/2 going into a 3 way switch, then 14/3 going into a light fixture, then 14/3 continuing to another 3 way switch. That is the end of the circuit. I need to add a single switch to a light fixture at the end of this circuit. Is this possible?

Probably not. There is most likely not a neutral at the last switch but the hot and two travelers. Sounds like a dead-end three way.

Adding fix at end of three-way

Removed original drawing that was too small. Drawings shows how to use X10 to add your light fixture if you are willing to use that product for your existing switching. You would need a two gang box at the far 3-way unless that new switch is in a different location.

Add fix at end of 3way

Original drawing was not large enough. Ray thanks for enlarging. I did this one as print is clearer. Hopefully this one comes out the right size.
