Cage the wild light bulb in order to protect it from its natural enemy, Vandalus urbanosa. Unlike the domestic indoor bulb which can be protected with a silk or paper shade, this more-endangered bulb is found outdoors or in rugged industrial habitats. Our yellow-plastic cage is available for bulbs of 100 watts or less. (Bulb should not touch plastic.) This cage is 6-1/2" long x 5" dia at its widest point. One side has a release latch for access to the bulb. It fits over a medium-base socket to protect the lamp in it. Hardware included.
Sounds like a Shirelles song, Baby Blue Teardrops, but these are really your standard household current night-light bulb (also seen strung on tannenbaums across the land). Ten watts with the usual E12 candelabra base, with a translucent bluish tint.
And the traffic lights we traffic in are the LED versions, using up a paltry 6W at 120VAC. You pick red or yellow, all brand new, 12" dia with a gasketed rubber rim. Measure 5-1/2" deep with a pair of 3-foot leads for power. Some may be color LEDs but most will have color lenses. Why so cheap? We got them from a municipality in the frozen north where they discovered too late that LEDs don't generate heat, and won't melt the snow that lands on the lenses when the cold wind blows. See what scientific ignorance leads to?
Neon indicator lamp, complete in a snap-in panel mounting. The mounting bezel is 7/8" x 1-1/2" and the lamp lens is 7/16" x 7/8". UL and CSA rated for 3/8 watts, 125 V. It has (2) spade connectors and should be great for the model railroad control panel.
This 120 VAC, 3/4-watt neon indicator lamp with (2) 6" leads is in a case designed to fit around the shaft of a dimmer switch. The white-plastic case is 2" x 3/4" x 5/16" thick. It has a 3/8" dia opening on one face, and a 7/16" dia opening on the other.
No need for caution when you can buy LED traffic lights at these prices. They're 120VAC and draw only 7 Watts (7.2 VA) to power red, yellow or green lights that measure 7-1/8" dia with a rubber gasketed lip. The whole shebang fits nicely into an 8" dia hole. Also measure 4" deep with a pair of 3-foot leads for power. Some may be clear with color LEDs but most will have color lenses. New, but they're here because some municipalities in the frozen north learned too late that LEDs don't generate heat, and hence won't melt the snow that blows onto them in winter.
