Searching my files for photos, but we have four MTH yard lights in our through yard. They look nice, but realistically, they're more for decoration than light output. If you can get LED bulbs to replace the incandescent ones, they'd probably throw a lot more light. One of these days we'll get around to changing to LEDs.

Spence did you buy the Lionel lights as 16 or did you combined 2 eight light kits to make one?

For me they all seem out of scale. I'm going to make my own. Don

Here is a pic of my yard with the Lionel 6-12759 tower lights and you will notice all my switches have a double headed Lionel 6-12927 #65 Yard light.   It works pretty well.  My table with overhead lights out looks like a night time scene, not bright, but workable.

I use a combination of Lionel 395 flood light towers and those Mars two bulb flood towers - the ones that always seem to show up at the train shows.

Well thanks for all the ideas so far. Sure don't want to make them but so far I am thinking  like scale rail.
