I was at a train show last year and was so impressed with this company and their phenomenal selection of shirts, that I bought one and took their business cards.  Tell them I sent you.

Brightech Lamps


It takes a lot to impress me, but the lamp I am using has been a life saver.  Perfect for many reasons, I highly recommend their product so much I did a video on it. 

I even can give you a 10% OFF COUPON.

JLwii2000 Reviews

I am more of a scenery guy than a rolling stock reviewer, so I rely on people like James to give an honest fair review.  Whether it's N or HO scale, he is the first and most thorough with his reviews.
