Just curious,,,,,,,,,,why would you want to put red Class Lights, i.e. NOT "marker lights" on the front of a steam locomotive?

Many modelers  refer to class lights as marker lites, even some suppliers .  parts catalogs refer to them in this way.  No offense intended to someone whose career was railroading. I have just been referring to them in this way for probably 40 years.

right or wrong they are marker lites to this old fellow

FYI, to help you ask for the correct parts,…..marker lights MARK the end of a train. ie; the end of the train being red MARKERS, ……class lights tell the job the train is doing, usually green, clear ( white ) or off ….depending if the train is regularly scheduled, or an extra….easiest way to remember, class lights on the front, markers on the rear ( in most cases) …..hope that helps

Tomar Industries had small (very small) LED's, that could be insert inside an existing light fixture.  Center of picture, attached to the red and blue wires.  Power supply also pictured, right.
