Using the 35 watt bulb wouldn't cause any harm to the transformer . If anything it would have been helpful since it would have reduced the overall current draw through the transformer.
If there is no issue with 120volts supply to the transformer and there is no voltage output from the transformer ( providing there no blown inline fuse ) -- it was time the transformer gave up the ghost.
