I recently got a new MTH oil derrick for the layout and am now having a problem with the bulb. Each time I turn off the power to the layout and come back later and power up, I find the bulb has blown. This and 3 other accessories are hooked to postwar LW using 14 volts. Do I just have a bad bunch of bulbs or is there another reason why this continues to happen?

Any information on how to solve would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Usually running bulbs over their rated voltage will shorten their life. Sounds like your bulbs life is extremely short, which would mean either the voltage is way over, or there is another problem.

Are your bulbs any good?

I picked up a box of GE landscape bulbs on Ebay for use in both our landscape lights, and in our vaccuum cleaner. I suspect they were rejects because they burn out very rapidly. I purchased some other bulbs (same type), and these work fine.
