Yes - search on eBay, or elsewhere, for tail lamps.

Springside, and I think Langley,, also make them.

Springside are painted and finished, but I've never used Langley: my latest are also Modelu.

All of the above are non-working. If you want working ones it's harder. Train-Tech do OO gauge ones which can be modified with some fibre optic, or you can build your own.

As njee20 says, there are some kits about for Ngauge, but you may as well build your own. There are plenty of tutorials on youtube and if you source your own LEDs from ebay, you can simulate oil lamps with flickering LEDs, or modern outline with flashing LEDs.

There are a number of manufacturer's in the colonies (USA  :D) that sell ready made and kits for American railroad EOT devices. E.G.

https://detailsnscale.com/n_lighting_products.htm, http://www.gatrworks.com/

Depends on how much you want to pay (postage from the US has risen vastly in recent years) and if you are prepared to do a bit of work to make them "anglicized".
