Let there be light

This is a veissmann OO/HO lamp standard, available from gaugemaster/hattons. They come fitted with bulbs and feed off a 12v DC supply. They are also a 'near identical'* match for those on Rhyd Ddu station... shown below...and at 48mm they are a scale 12ft high, which might be a tiny bit too tall, but the bases could be sunk into the platform a little to account for this.
I'm pleased I found these as the only alternative was to take some white metal lamps I already have and run a cable up one edge of them (as they weren't hollow and there is no chance of drilling them!).
Expensive though :-) £6 each!
*yes, I know they're not perfect, but no-one will notice really!
