I recently had some 1 1/2" scale kerosene headlight chimneys custom glass blown for my current project. I have a few spares available at $28 each including Priority postage to the continental USA.

A drawing is below. I had them made for a kerosene headlight. But I also used them for the electric headlight on my Disney 4-4-0. The chimney will accept a G4 12volt LED bulb as shown. The G4 is very bright as can be seen in the photo. The bulb socket is round plastic so can be pushed into the same base that holds the chimney. A small piece of heat shrink tubing can be used to cover up the micro-electronics in the bulb base.

The glass used was laboratory grade tubing so should take any heat from electric bulb or flame..

I think the chimneys could be used for a 2 1/2" scale kerosene lamp for cab lighting or other.

Anyway if anyone has an interest please PM me.
