I believe incandescent can still cause fading, even without the UV. And according to the model train forums fluorescent is better than incandescent in that it provides a better quality of light. But the downside is the UV.

What I have done is what the model train collectors recommended and that is to use a plastic screen to defuse the light, which reduces the UV considerably.

I'd also advise against having the display cabinet lights on all the time. The continual light can cause items to fade.
