Map/Computer Light for Cab

Ever since building our laptop console last year, I had been looking for a light to mount over the computer for night-time use. At the Fall '05 LD GTG in Burlington, what should I find on the Silent Auction table but a nice little 12-volt, goose-neck light - just what I was looking for. And I managed to win it ! It's made by Littlite.

For travel, the gooseneck easily flexes up and rests in the loop of cables to the CB radio.

 This shows the base of the light mounted up beside the CB radio. It was easy to splice the light wires into the CB radio power line.
