Howdy folks. I'll confess right up front, I don't do trains. I do however enjoy 1/32nd scale slot cars. And what I'd like to find is some streetlights for my track layout.

Now, I know y'all have the best toys for this stuff so what I've seen is the LIONEL 12804 Highway Lights and they look just about perfect. 6 inches tall is what they claim.

Can anyone confirm the height? Can anyone talk about how much light they actually give off? Is it adequate to use in a dark room? How closely do they need to be spaced together to be effective?

Does anyone have some they could let go or is there a better suggestion for something to use?

Look forward to hearing from you.

A zillion thanks!

May your rails be clear and your switches open.
