The lights with the "new cork screw are no different than tubes (confirmed by the GE chemist in Cleveland, OH). The greatest advantage to the natural lights is they are dimmable, so you can save electricity and set different "moods - times of day in the room". I have not even discussed the cleanup procedure if you break a fluorescent bulb as it a hazardous material involving gloves, dust mask, and proper disposal (as some states it is illegal to but fluorescent bulbs in the local trash/landfill because of the mercury they contain).

We just converted the lights that we use the most from the normal incandescent bulbs to the new cork screw type bulbs which are supposed to be energy efficient. As a result of the series of comments on train room lighting I am wondering if anyone has any thoughts on that type of bulb. We do have one flourescent tube type of "grow light" or "natural" light over some house pants on the sill of the kitchen window which faces north and two "regular" flourescent tubes on the sides of the medicine cabinets in the bath rooms
