Wiring HO Scale 12 volt FMR Model IT Street Lights

I'd already installed a pair of 12 volt Frizinghall Model (FMR) street lights outside the entrance to the Hotel de Paris.

Each pair of these lights comes with a resistor to be wired in series so that the bulbs don't overheat.

The blue resistor is in between the lights.
However, for the string of lights that I was wiring up for outside the street cafe, I felt that one could dispose with the need for resistors if one wired the 8 lights in series with each other.

So, that's what I did.

The heights of the posts will be adjusted.
Currently listening to:

"Lisbon Acid" by Aphex Twin.

It's only available on vinyl but someone has uploaded it to youTube.

Last night's dinner:

From the freezer, an unidentifiable bag of something which turned out to be beef and mushroom in gravy. Neither of us could remember anything about its origins.

Still plugging away at this.

Last night, cycled to Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall for a performance of Beethoven's 4th Piano Concerto performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra under Peter Oundjian's baton.

The soloist was the Argentine, Ingrid Fliter.
