Hi everyone,

I found this set of small LED streetlamps in Lowe's this morning. They're a "clearance" holiday item, selling for $4.99 per pack of six.

They come pre-wired to a small box which holds a pair of "AA" size batteries. The small wreaths attached to the posts can be removed.

The length of the wiring limits the placement options to the distance shown here, but the wire could of course be lengthened.

I ran the wires under the tiles I'm using here to simulate poured concrete, and hid the battery box just inside the doorway of the station. I think they're a great size for G scale, look quite good, and are a real bargain for the price. They really help make this station's platform a focal point.

The building kit is by Piko, the "Beer Garden Café."

I bought mine from Nicolas Smith; TrainWorld carries them too. I prefer to buy these structure kits in person, since they do have vulnerable pieces which can break during shipping.
