until now I use leaded 6V bulbs as showed about
Bulbs - 6v | Mollys House Miniatures
and add a resistor between 10 ohms and 200 ohms - independend of the current from the bulb and the wanted brightness (as dark as possible, just so, that you can still read the display).

Are there any experience with the new generation of bright LED's?
