Light Show

The Tri-ang Railways Anti-aircraft Searchlight Wagon, Catalogue Nº R.341, was available between 1962 and 1965 and was part of Tri-ang's set of NATO / Battlespace rolling stock.
It is quite rare to find a boxed example of this wagon and even rarer to find one with the lamp still in full working order, as in the photo above.
The lamp picked up its current from the track and was available both individually and, also, as part of "The Defender Train Set".
This train set consisted of a Class 08 diesel shunter, the searchlight wagon, 4-rocket launcher wagon and exploding car and was produced in 1964 only.
