Modern station lamps
« on: February 24, 2019, 09:53:01 AM »
Looking for any pointers for potential shops/suppliers of N gauge station lamps for my N gauge layout. Era will be late 70s/early 80s, BR Blue diesels.
Attached are a couple of photos taken at my local station showing single and double lamps - I like these and it would be good to find something similar in model form. Also need tall lighting for my MPD.
Thank you, Robin

What size are your pics, Robin? They really need to be under 2MB.

Some places I always look are:-

https://www.layouts4u.net/n-scale-lighting/

There are plenty of supplies available from EBay as well

I get a lot of my 3v/12v lighting via ebay. If you do not mind waiting, some of the Far Eastern suppliers are very cheap. Have a look at these for yard lighting -
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/H76-4-model-yard-lights-12V-Model-lamp/162175651547?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=461149121759&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

Type in 12v n gauge lighting, you will need plenty of time to go through everything!

I should add that there are lots of UK suppliers as well. I have used layouts4u as mentioned by NPN. Not as cheap, but quicker.

David.
I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.
If a friend seems distant, catch up with him.
