Looking for a source for caboose marker lights like the ones used on the K Line cabooses.  Here is a picture

I borrowed from Palallin (thanks!).  They are the most realistic I've seen.  Got nowhere on the Lionel parts site.  I also have a K Line caboose, but what to upgrade some others I have.

They are very nice pieces!

A set of the Tomar Adlake lights.  LEDs,  807L or 809L, are the better lights, there is a required power supply. 

There was also drum heads for the rear of passenger trains.  Also LED. 

Note the LED between the red and blue wires, and the power supply kit. 

818L replacement LED from the website.

 Does any one know if the wire and bulb pulls out of the marker light on the Tomar model ? I have a K-line caboose missing just the marker light holder and lenses.  Marker light fell out and entered the black hole in my basement.

Yes.  The LED (middle) of picture can be purchased separately.  LED requires the power supply in the picture. 

818L  replacement LED pictured.

Precision Scale and Wiseman sell cored markers for loco and rolling stock applications. No need to buy a kit if you only need the housings. You can get them direct or many of their products are on ebay.

I've added the Tomar LED markers to a few cabeese....

Caboose Lights 1

But, I set them up for flicker-free battery power using an Evans Design package that includes a push-button on/off switch and disc battery/holder...

Caboose Int 2

This installation was to an Ambroid kit build....one side of the car held in place with 7 neodymium magnets.  The button switch (white item) is easily accessible at the bottom near the car side.   

The Tomar lights really add a touch of class to a caboose...or the tail end of a local's HW coach.

IMHO, of course!
