Train Lamps and Headcodes: Prototype Notes and Guidance for Modellers has been jointly produced by Noel Leaver and The 2mm Scale Association.

Featuring more than over 40 photographs the book covers the use of headcodes, tail lamps, side lamps, and the display of numbers and codes on trains from the 19th century until the current day.

Modelling lamps covers both non-working and working lamps, and while the examples are for 2mm scale, the techniques can be applied in many other scales.
