HO Scale gooseneck lamps? (non-LED)
Posted by ChrisVA on Wednesday, November 2, 2022 5:01 AM

I'm trying to find some HO scale gooseneck outdoor lamps that would be mounted over a door. Non-powered, simple plastic or metal pieces. Unfortunately I'm having trouble finding them online. Does anyone know where I can get these?
Thanks

Not exactly gooseneck, but    Tichy ?

 

Good Luck, Ed

I use products from these guys. Mine actually light but I guess you could have them not light. The price is right. Lampshades, escutcheons, and tubing are available.

Walters has them under thier own brand.  And they can be found on shapeways as well

Brent, how were those to assemble?  I bought a set of them, but when I looked at them I thought they looked like a lot of work.  I had more urgent projects, so I postponed doing them and they're still in a box in the train room.

Walthers also has incandescent wall-mounted lamps.  They stick out at right angles, not goosenecks, but they might also suit your era.

There is an interesting learning curve and once I mess around a bit got the hang of it. The most important thing I learned was to make sure you have the wire through the tube before you bend it.

I ordered 500 LEDs from China for $2.00, it was a good thing as the casualty rate was high at first when I attacked them with the soldering iron.Laugh I am really good at it now.
