Locomotive Headlamp

Hi,

Does anyone know of either a supplier of headlamps or a set of drawings for loco headlamp suitable for a Romulus?

Thanks,

Simon J

I do believe that the Engineers Emporium sell a small working oil lamp, the body being about 2" square, price? no idea.
The Miniature Railway Supply Co now sell the Scaleway signal parts. The round bodied GWR signal lamp could be adapted.

I have an old cycle lamp via ebay, originally I used lamp oil but found the front one got a little too hot on the chimney so have now put cheap LEDs modern cycle lamps inplace of the wick and they look the part
Not sure how big it is but there is one similar on ebay now
