Yup, that looks like 'em.
I've learned a few specs about the specific bulbs I'm looking for:
- 4.6mm (height, I guess)
- 12volt (well, I guess that's a given)
- generally referred to as 'capless bulb'
.... and from experience, I know that you can buy either the bulb by
itself or with it's plastic/twist-in enclosure. However, while in my
'98 you can easily remove and re-feed-in a new bulb into these
enclosures, I don't think you can in the newer models (2000+ ?) since
they have melted two spots on the back of the enclosure to keep the bulb
leads in place (for no reason, I'm sure - other than to prevent misers
like me to reuse what's not broken <grin>).
The wattage seems significant ... as the other 'grain of wheat' lamps
I've found can be VERY low wattage (e.g., for model railroad use), yet I
think we need 1.2 watts for that soft/gentle illumination and yet,
I think $1-2 per bulb is a little steep ... don't you all? I'd like to
buy in bulk and get 'em for .50 ea, or less.
Maybe I should look to my model railroad store and see if they have
slightly higher wattage bulbs! I'll keep you posted.
