Go over to Large Scale Central to the rolling stock forum, look up a thread by Bruce Chandler called marker lights. He uses led lenses made by Mouser electronics, You can get them in all colors about $.30 each. Hope this helps.
Over on one of those other forums, I found some neat replacements for the jewels used in marker lights.
You can get these from Mouser Electronics for under 30 cents each. = [url]http://www.mouser.com/search/ProductDet … y593-3000R[/url] - you'll probably spend more in postage than on the product. They come in red, green, yellow, amber, blue, and clear. [url]http://www.mouser.com/search/Refine.asp … _Wildcards[/url] Check out the data sheet and you can see it's a lens with a tube attached - I just used my razor saw to cut off the lens part and glued them in place. In this case, I'm using them with 1.5volt lights - and they look a whole lot better than those old jewels.
Hope this helps
