1.0mm End Glow Fiber Optic Cable
Which fiber to use?
The 1.0mm diameter fiber is ideal for street lamps. This is the one that we incorporate into the Dwarvin lamps. Some customers want to create their own lights, for which this fiber is the most recommended. This size is well suited to N Scale models.
The 1.5mm diameter fiber is the usual first choice in developing your lighting system. This is because it is 2 1/4 times brighter than the 1.0mm diameter fiber and, therefore, typically provides the right lighting for a house on the layout using only one fiber. Larger buildings will require more fibers if all of it is to be lit inside. This size is well suited to both HO and O scale structures.
Smaller fiber sizes are also available providing for applications such as car lights, lighting in trees or others that you can imagine.
We only sell the highest quality of fiber - inferior brands will not be as bright and are prone to breaking when bent!
How much Fiber?
Many modelers use a 3ft length for each light, sometimes less, sometimes a bit more. For your convenience we stock fibers in 30ft bags, but other lengths can be ordered.
