Need help to identify the decorative outfit accessory
« on: January 03, 2019, 07:46:48 pm »
Hello,

I think this is mostly the question for guys who still remember 1980s.
My friend asked me to help him with moving the small train (it stuck in the tunnel, I know it sounds weird by just check the picture below) a bit by supplying some voltage to a vintage "decorative outfit accessory" which is a fact is a replacement of  a bulb from an indoor string lights.
The stamp on the toy  says  "1988", search in the internet did not return any results. The friend does not remember if this particular string lights was directly connected to the mains or there was a dedicated power adapter.
Looking at the adapter which does not have any marking or a key I think that this is an AC powered device, the question is how many volts should be applied.
So may be someone knows anything about those vintage toys and can provide some useful info?

PS: Disassembling the item is not the option.

Plugs into light bulb sockets on a miniature tree light string. Use only with standard U.L. listed light strings of 3.5 or 6 volts. Attached connector cord allows for easy placement on the tree; Not for use with blinking lights.
