You might consider replacing both with LEDs, and the answer to where to get those is anywhere that sells electronics. Any well-stocked hobby shop, and numerous on line retailers will have them.

I agree to replace with LEDs and you wll probably be done replacing the ditch lights.
I also suggest you measure the voltage to the ditch lights. Anything over 3 volts will
blow the LEDs. If over 3 volts you will need to add a resistor to each light. Not hard.

It's amazing that Athearn waited (resisted) for so long, to employ LED lighting in their locomotives.

Check this site: Evan Designs

This should take care of any model lighting needs you might have.
