N-Scale Streetlights
« on: June 12, 2013, 07:49:10 PM »

Just wondering if anyone knows of a source for non-operating N-scale streetlights ... preferably mid-20th century style?  I have a few random metal castings from Woodland Scenics/DPM kits, but couldn't find anything else ... only the operating Model Power street lights.

Appreciate any help you could offer up.

I like the Kato streetlights. This package has both singles and doubles.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Telephone-Poles-and-Street-Lights-Kato-23-215-/360204374867

These may be a bit too modern, but in my opinion look better than most. This package also includes some Japanese style telephone poles that aren't very useful, but it includes some nice pole mount transformers as a bonus.

I bought mine from this seller PlazaJapan, and it arrived promptly, and very well packaged. There is another guy from the US on eBay who is selling these at twice the price, but I have found PlazaJapan to be a very good seller.

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

I certainly would echo Dave on this one.  I think they are probably a 1980's and beyond style but they are very nice.

Check the 'bay for some of those bulk Chinese suppliers. Some of them have modern-ish non-functional streetlights.

Also, architectural model supply shops that sell "street furniture." Try JJT for starters: http://www.jttmicroscale.com/viewcategory.asp?DirID=96

Picked up some used Brawas at a swap show and thought they were kind of cool.

Unfortunately Neal closed shop and moved out of NH (I believe back to his home state in the South).  The remaining inventory was sold and it became another hobby shop in Manchester, NH.   Neil is still active - he usually shows up at larger model RR shows and conventions.  He might even do mail order (Google search of the Internet, or even of this or the Atlas forum, should yield more info).  However I think that the email address for Neal is still correct.

He was at Springfield.
He mentioned something about his getting back into the show circuit beyond just doing the Springfield show every year.
