I'm about to embark upon an installation of 3-way switches with Pilot Lights. Have done 3-way & 4-way before, but not with Pilot Lights. Could use some advice / diagrams for installation of 3-way & 4-way switches with Pilot Light. Thanks, randywpeters

You'd be wise to describe (better: link) the switches you have in mind, and then describe what you expect the behavior to be of the "pilot lights". Also, will you be able to run "smurf tube" (flexible non-metallic conduit) between the two 3-way switches?

Pilot lights on all the switches is not going to be easy. You will need a neutral and a switched hot at each switch.
One scenario I can see is power feed and light at the same switch and four wire cable to all the other switches.

Because then you can run as many wires as you want in there, so if you want always-hot, neutral and/or switched-hot at both 3-way locations to make the pilot lights work, nolo problemo.
