First- buildings don't want to be lit brightly- a soft glow, bordering on yellow is more realistic, and representative.

Second- if run at rated voltage the life of the bulbs will probably be short- perhaps as short as a few hours. If you run the bulbs at half rated voltage (6-7V) their life will be almost indefinite.

For power source, look for an old toy train transformer at a yard sale.
