Goodies from China
Over the Christmas period I ordered some scenic lighting pieces from China and they have just arrived. I’ve ordered various different styles of light, and to start with there are going to be more pieces than I need for myself. So, if you fancy a take-away, without having to wait for it to come from China, I’m putting some pieces on eBay.
I’ve registered a business seller’s account on eBay under the name Dales Peak Models. I’m going to use this to sell various items, including some of these lighting pieces. Why not take a look!
These are the most expensive item I bought, but they do have 6 lamps.
I don’t intend to use these as they are. The idea is to use them as signal heads for making my own signals. Yet another ‘to do’ project. We all know what that’s like.
Although these lights are intended for a 6V power supply they can be used with a 12V supply, if a resistor is wired in series.
These 15 ohm resistors come with each lamp for use with a 12V power supply.
For installing into the layout baseboards I would probably start with a 2.5mm diameter hole and gradually open it out until there was a snug fit for the lamps base.
Anyway, that’s it for now but these lighting masts are the first items I’m going to put some of on Dales Peak Models eBay Site.
