- Painting instructions changed
- Resistor values changed and example photos added.
Clearance posts with lamps were placed at fouling points of sidings and loops and were painted white for visibility. The lamps were lit at night usually by the Station Assistant and spares would have been kept along with kerosene in the lamp room attached to the men’s toilet.
THE FD and FUD should be rinsed for 30 seconds or so in acetone and allowed to dry.
I prefer a 10K Ohm resistor as it doesn't appear to be on when it is 'day light' and is slightly less bright in the dark perhaps replicating a kerosene lamp.
Here are some examples:
|1K Ohm resistor - Light shows in 'daylight'|
|1K Ohm resistor - Light flare from lens|
|10K Ohm resistor - Lamp appears to be off in 'daylight'|
|10K Ohm resistor - No light flare from lens|
