Billboards are made in 9 sizes, however, after doing a little research, I found the majority are built using 3 sizes for their advertising surfaces. To simplify I'll just call them small, medium or market size and large or mega size. The sizes refer to the advertising area. The beams/legs holding the billboards up vary in hight do to location. For instance; a billboard that is meant to be see from an interstate highway overpass would be placed up high on a single or dual beam. 

The small billboards are 10 ft wide by 5 ft high. A small HO scale would be 1.8 inches wide by 1.3 inches high. The medium billboards are 20 ft wide by 10 ft high. In HO scale it would be 2.75 inches wide by 1.8 inches high. The large billboards are 40 ft wide by 10 ft high. In HO scale it would be 5.5 inches wide by 1.8 inches high. I can make any size you want, but for pricing purposes I will use these 3 sizes. To do these in N scale I'll simply half the above measurements.

HO SCALE GOOSE NECK STREET LAMP

HIGHT: 4 inches (10.2 CM)

WIDTH: 1.5 inches (2.95 CM)

VOLTAGE INPUT: 7-12 volts AC/DC

MATERIAL: MAIN POLE IS MADE OF 3/32 INCH DIAMETER COPPER TUBE, 1/8 INCH AND 5/32 INCH DIAMETER COPPER TUBE. EACH TUBE IS FIT OVER THE OTHER TO CREATE A TELESCOPE EFFECT TOWARD THE BASE. THE LAMP SHADE IS CAST IN POLYURETHANE AND HOUSES A 2MM LED.


I have only recently began to design and building N scale model train lights. The Cobra Head style street light is the only light I have at the moment. I'm working on a N scale 4-way Flashing Traffic Light I hope to have finished soon. Once I have that project finished I'll begin experimenting with an N scale telephone pole with a Cobra Head Street Light attached. Next on my to do list is a park style lamp post. I hope to introduce a new design each month.

I'll use whatever mode of communication you, the designer of the project, are comfortable with until we bring your idea to life. 

I enjoy a challenge and exchanging ideas. There is nothing I enjoy more than building a original one of a kind piece for any scale model train layout.

N SCALE

Each light  pole is an 1/8 inch in diameter and extends 3/4 inches below the base that is 5/32 inches wide by 1/8th inches high (seen in the picture at the bottom of the light pole) and represents a concrete piling on which the street light is mounted. Below the base, at the very bottom of the 1/8th inch main light pole, are 8 inches of 32 guage double strand power wires. The positive wire is protected by a 920 ohm 1/2 watt resistor.  8 inches of wire is  provided for both positive and negative leads. I'll provide extra lengths of wire free of charge upon request

Installation is simple. You only need a drill and an 1/8th inch drill bit. Detailed instructions are enclosed.

WARNING: BE SURE POWER IS OFF WHILE INSTALLING. DO NOT ALLOW POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE LEADS TO TOUCH OR LED WILL BURNOUT.
