As far as I know, yes.  The tail lamp has only one lens whereas the side lamp as a front and rear lens.

Example:
Search for 'side lamp' here - http://www.midlandrailwaystudycentre.org.uk/catalogue.php
The third result should have a bit of video showing a 360 degree rotation of such a lamp.
(Sorry, can't work out how to embed the video here...)

Thanks for hat.  All links worked and that one looks as if it has a 4" x 4" base, but a huge red lens  :)

Jon,
Don't forget perspective in those photos!
I reckoned the bases to be more like 5" square - try drawing a 5" square on a piece of paper, angle it to yourself and hold a rule in front of it, positioned approximately as in the photos...
You may, of course, disagree.
I'm sorry we can't access any of the actual items to check it for another year or so.
