There's a whole cottage industry out there making stuff like this but the cottages can be hard to find


Off the top of my head, I suggest trying:-

Langley
Wills
Ratio

Another avenue of research would be to try some of the finescale companies who specialise in a particular big four or grouping company. For example Brassmasters specialise in the LMS and whilst I don't think they have any seats or lamps, it gives you an idea of the type of company I mean. So perhaps a visit to the ScaleFour society website might lead you to a supplier of what you need.

I am sure others will be along soon with some suggestions.

Hi,

Just as a thought you could try on ebay. There is a seller called everydaygoodz, who supplies lights and other bits. Ive bought several items from him and they are very good and cheap. They might not be what your looking for but worth a try. http://stores.ebay.co.uk/everydaygoodz

I bought some of their lights a few days ago. I'll let you know how they turn out.

Hi Doug,

I have not powered mine up yet but they dont look bad, if you power yours up before me let me know what you think and i will do the same. Ive bought street lamps, station lamps and some old style victorian lamps i think.

These look very interesting - not exactly prototypical but cheap enough to try out - even if only half of them work!
Please post your results
