    You must mean Stu's Tilley IL37. This one.

    They are rare things. I traded this one to Stu a while back but it was missing the reflector and the support frame. Stu did a nice job of reproducing the reflector and also made a stand for it. It was not lit at Ipswich but it is in working order.

    This is the only shot I did of Stu's display.

    Yeah well you will have to shake a lot of trees before another one falls out. I don't know how many there are out there but at a guess maybe less than 10. They were used by some rail companies in smaller signal boxes so a few will have survived. ::Neil::

    That Tilley model is scarce, but I have seen at least two examples listed on UK., Ebay over the years.

    I moved on my IL37 last year - I don't know if it was counted in the estimated 10 survivors. It came from a railway station somewhere just north of Edinburgh. It took me about 15 years to find one... ](*,)

    Great photos! Sadly we could not make it this year as it was the day of our return from the west country to Essex, and after the 300+ miles hack to get home that same day, I could not face another 120 miles round trip. I consider myself reprimanded and will try harder next year.
