Does anyone make any yard tower lights?

Maybe something like this. 
It happens to be an NJ International HO model.

The towers look good, but you'd need to do something with those lamps!  Eeep!

Our N Scale Yard Light tower should take no more than 30 minutes to assemble. Richmond Controls http://www.richmondcontrols.com/ has a lighting kit for it too. I'm working on a lighting kit for the HO tower too.

I don't see the kit listed on the website (which is very poorly done, by the way.)

Is there a direct link to the product in question?

Good question. I didn't see it either, but he did send me a sample kit awhile back.

They are mentioned in his last newsletter.  From reading the blurb, if your samples weren't production pieces, maybe they were never made.

Working would be nice but lights can be added latter. I'm looking for this info
for Peter. He was trying to find some at Springfield last Saturday and came up empty.

Thanks for all the info so far.

miniatronics has one available. But you would still need to lose the 10ft dia scale lamps. ::)

N-gineering also offers their stainless steel aluminum lampholders, along with LED's .......these might do the trick too.

Now, Now, I just measured one and they are only 3'-6" in diameter.  ;D :-\

 I'd like the Minitronics yard lights if they were about 20x cheaper.
