Fiber Optics

Add fibers to the Lamplighter Box to illuminate your model train layout.

The 1.5mm diameter fiber is the usual first choice in developing your lighting system. This is because it is 2 1/4 times brighter than the 1.0mm diameter fiber and, therefore, typically provides the right lighting for a house on the layout using only one fiber. Larger buildings will require more fibers if all of it is to be lit inside.  This size is well suited to both HO and O scale structures.

The 1.0mm diameter fiber is ideal for street lamps. This is the one that we incorporate into the Dwarvin lamps.  Some customers want to create their own lights, for which this fiber is the most recommended.  This size is well suited to N Scale models.

Smaller fiber sizes are also available providing for applications such as car lights, lighting in trees or others that you can imagine.

We only sell the highest quality of fiber - Mitsubishi ESKA fiber made in Japan.  Inferior brands will not be as bright and most importantly, are prone to breaking when bent (once bitten, twice shy!)
