BTW, I was told by Osram or Phillips (I forgot) that those red LED festival lights are no longer manufactured. Sad really, I think they could be ideal.
I'll likely never have a darkroom big enough for a Thomas anyway, so it's a moot point Though there's no reason you couldn't augment the Thomas with smaller lights here and there.

That's a shame about the festival lights. I'm sure there are suitable replacements though. Anything with a screw in base and in red would probably be fine.
