Interior Lights for D&RG 470 Tourist Sleeper

April 19, 2017 07:39PM avatar
So given that we're past the "end of the beginning" of the restoration of the Tourist Sleeper, Tom asked me to help broadcast a plea to the Narrow Gauge Community for help in finding more information about the interior light fixtures. These are apparently not your run of the mill passenger car fixtures; we've already looked through the libraries at CRRM in Golden, and the IRM Pullman Library in Union. But we haven't seen anything like them These aren't like any others that we know about. We do have a potential craftsman interested in working with us to build reproductions, but the more we have to do our own "discovery" on dimensions and features, the more it is going to cost. Ideally, we would find the original blueprints of these, but we don't think that is going to happen. The next best thing is that someone here knows of another car that has similar fixtures. That would help immensely! Then we could draw up our own plans. See the photo below for the as-built design.

Or we can just put fluorescent shop lights in the thing and call it good.
