LED Headlight Modernization Kits for Stewart F-Unit locomotives and possibly other E, F and Cab-Units. Converts single-bulb headlights and action lights into twin-beam headlights and/or combination action+emergency lights.


Are you modeling a cab-unit that has twin-sealed-beam headlights? Units with two and three-bulb action lights? If your locomotive came from the factory with single bulbs, here’s your answer!


I have designed reflector-plate fittings that specifically fit the lower door-mounted twin-beam headlights, the upper nose-mounted twin-beam headlights and the upper nose-mounted 2-bulb and 3-bulb action lights. These are most commonly configured as a single, red UDE light over single or dual white action lights, such as a Mars or Gyralite.


These reflector-plates feature fine detail, with bezels, hinge and latch detail molded-in. They come in plain gray and may be painted any color you wish such as chrome or silver. You can even color them with a silver Sharpie® Marker, as shown in the installation photos. A light coat of gray primer prior to coloring is recommended. The lights have been perfectly scaled to the prototype and may be installed horizontally or vertically, depending on your prototype application.


Individual-position options include:

• Lower door-mounted twin-beam headlight

• Upper nose-mounted twin-beam headlight

• Upper-2-bulb-UDE/action-light

• Upper-3-bulb-UDE/action-light


Dual-position options include:

• Combo: upper-twin-beam+lower-twin-beam

• Combo: two-bulb-action+lower-twin-beam

• Combo: three-bulb-action+lower-twin-beam


Between these four options, you should be able to accurately replicate nearly any prototype arrangement.


The twin-beam kits include the chosen reflector-plate, clear lightpipe lens, pre-wired warm-white LED and 3mm heat-shrink pieces.


The UDE/action light kits include the chosen reflector-plate, two clear lightpipe lenses, pre-wired warm-white LED, pre-wired red LED, black styrene divider and 3mm heat-shrink pieces.
