How do you make lens for oil style lamps? Dia 11/32. What do you use for an adhesive that will not show? Have seen just a few with nice clear lens. I have a Selly (white metal?) lamp for my On30 T- Boiler Shay. This along with removing the generator will make it look more like #94 as delivered. For any of you that need to back date an engine this detail from Bowser (just lucky) fits over the Bachmann light if you remove the visor.
