Is there any particular supplier you would recommend for your LED strips & bulbs?

 

Kirley

For my led strips I use this guy on ebay

They are led strips which can be cut and soldered and you can have different colours and using them in Metcalfe kits is good from the point of view that they do not disappate heat. He also is good if you need any questions answered. some of his other kits seem quite good also. For the street lamps I bought from ebay in Hong kong but not really impressed as they are wheat grain bulbs and tend to give off too much heat.

I have also used Pre Wired 5mm Clear LEDs with White Light for DC12V - DC16V which also come in 3mm of ebay and these are not too bad. An example of thses are the COKE Machine on the platform which has a 5mm led inside it. If at all where possible I recommend the use of LEDs as opposed to Wheat Grain Bulbs as they are safer. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/Trains-Railway-Models-/479/i.html?item=400317779751&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT&_dmd=2&_ssn=wehonest_cn
