1. A lighting system accommodating a light source, the lighting system comprising:
a track comprising at least a first rail and a second rail mutually extending equidistantly along an axis, said first rail and said second rail are spaced apart by an opening defining a plane P, the first rail comprising a first electrically conductive strip and the second rail comprises a second electrically conductive strip, said strips are mutually electrically isolated,
at least one lighting module comprising:
a first electrical contact and a second electrical contact, each being adapted to make electrical contact with a respective one of the first and second electrically conductive strips when supported by a respective carrier side of the first rail and the second rail, and
a light guide base having a mutually opposing first and second sides, the lighting module and the track being free from mutual overhang to enable to dismount the lighting module from the track by a displacement in a direction essentially perpendicular to plane P,
wherein the track comprises the light source having a plurality of light emitters disposed on the track, and
wherein the lighting module has a light incoupling surface facing towards the light source to receive light emitted by the light source from the track and a light outcoupling surface at the first side of the light guide base.
