Default Wanted.. Road warning lamps

Evening,
Off topic, but some time ago I posted a wanted for a Dorman Smith Trafilamp (still looking) but I was kindly given an Ever Ready lamp, this has really sparked my collecting passion for these for the 'man cave'. Does anybody here have or know of any for sale, any makes or colours, I quite fancy adding a blue emergency services lamp and red railway track lamp too.
Please message me if you do.
Thanks

These are often for sale on ebay. Suggested search term is "road lamp" this will find mainly the paraffin lamps but also includes the battery versions.

The blue ones are very rare and rather expensive, there is one for sale right now.

I have no connection with any vendor of these.

EDIT to add, or try searching for "dorman lamp" which excludes most of the paraffin versions

Thanks for the suggestion, I have seen them on ebay, but think most are sold by 'dealers' and the prices seem crazy in some cases. Somebody here just might have one kicking around in the shed etc they are happy to sell reasonably?
