Guards Van Side Lamps LG01
BR guards van side lamps. Side lamps were used on all unfitted trains which didn't have the vacuum or air brakes fitted or connected up to the engine, they showed a white light to the front and a red light to the rear during the hours of darkness, they had a removable red slide which would allow a white light to show to the rear when the train was off the mainline in a lye or siding.
Painted black until 1970's then white. In use until unfitted trains were phased out.
Supplied unpainted in a pack of five
Our loco lamps are all cast from a high quality white metal which contains a small percentage of lead to improve the strength and give a smooth surface to the finished item.
Designed to be glued in place but could be drilled out.
