      Bill,

      It was worth the question just to get that fabulous picture in reply! Hope you have a thread on that engine house.

      Thanks,

      Wes

      There is this video - G scale Making cheap lights for your model buildings 

      If you model G scale indoors, this guys RR is great. On YouTube it's under UB Railroad, his videos are very interesting and he show you what you can do for very little money being spent on RR projects.

      Bruce:

       

      Is this what you are thinking of as a lamp shade?

      Mark, that was my first thought, but I had been looking at master Ray's buildings first , so the household style was in the back of my mind already

      I suppose I don't know what else to call it. When I do a search "industrial lamp shade" it comes up. Those green ones come up.

       

      I'm doing an outdoor layout, but some of the UB layout ideas are still applicable. As Pete will surely attest, Arizona sun is brutal.
