Or these ceramic infrared 50W heater bulbs with standard E27 screw base:

$13 for 2.
Many other options also shown.

I may get them to mount under the firebox propane burners of my two locos.

I figure by the 4th page, you guys have fingered a solution, and I know some on the board are not a fan of conspiracy theories, but this one is pretty good...

Not even these small diameter (2.16") ones?

Bill,

I suspect you're already aware of these, but if not then you may want to take a look at the 75W 120V 2-pin halogen T4 bulbs and their bulb-holders. I used to use one of those inserted through the firehole door before I switched to the magnetic heaters. They give off a lot of heat for their small size.

Best regards
Steve
