    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.

    I have had an email saying that it is Definitely Cancelled for this year.

    What would be the chances of some sort of Virtual Lamplight Wheels thingy happening???

    Official or unofficial?

    Official, I'd doubt - but you could always suggest it to them. Unofficial, you could organise it here. Well volunteered, Sir! :D :p

    Just had a look at their website and they are open most of this month so if you are in the area and experiencing the great British summer I thoroughly recommend it :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:
