We adorn our structures, motive power, rolling stock,right of way and street scenes with lights and lamps of various designs. Some are functioning and some are merely decorative, but they are a prevalent part of our modeling.

Let's devote this first Photo Gallery of 2013 to these sources of light. If you have shots of some of those lamps lighting up a scene, all the better. But functioning or not, lets see those lights and lamps.

I once again want to caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

My edge of the module machine shop with some 1.5v bulbs. They really don't provide much lighting, so there is a larger grain of wheat bulb up higher to do so:

Not only structures can benefit from lighting, you can enjoy seeing your vehicles and other items on the layout lit up at night.
Here I installed lights into a tug boat and a set of buoys. http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=35557

Sometimes placing the camera directly into the scene brings you surprising results. The camera is on a mini-tripod in the scenery of my layout where I captured this shot of Maine Central train #391 "The Oil Can".
The light on the front of the engine is so bright that it created this interesting starlike flare.



I really like this track-level shot of the MEC train on its approach into the yard at North Dover. The starlike flare is once again eviden in the image.
No editing of this image was done...it was just that the light on the F-unit is so bright!

One night when the power went out here, I fooled around with a pen light and came up with this. Oh, the fixture has been P'shopped.
