Jeff,
Beautiful work!

I’ve seen lots of your stuff, all top notch.

232390 is the flat bracket. D&RG used a similar bracket except it was made to fit in the corner instead of flat. When you aren’t using the lamps you can stick a couple of flags in them!

FAMC marker lamps

Does anyone have information on whether the Franklin Automatic Machine Company lamps are still being made and sold?

I can’t find a website for FAMC, and sadly FlashersRUs is gone with the passing of the owner.

Re: Couple of Shorties

Hi Carl, Well, if I remember correctly the bolt and flanged area both come off. Why not consider making a prototypical lamp bracket and hang the thing on a prototypical mount the bracket slides into from the top? They had flat ones and corner ones. Heck, if you are using led’s why not just stick a t...

Re: Couple of Shorties

Carl, Beautiful attention to detail. Thanks again for documenting. I learn from everyone! I have the same markers on my caboose. Clearance...do you have enough clearance inside the car for a quick connect to the thru bolt on the lamps? Maybe drill a hole through the bolt and install a cotter pin to ...
