N Scale Lighting & Animation

LED Lighting Products

Welcome to our N Scale Page.  Here you will find an overview of all the N Scale products that we manufacture.  TO PURCHASE any of these products, please visit the STORE.  The Store information is the most up to date.

We began our business with N Scale LED lighting boards for my Amtrak passenger train.  From there we expanded to everything you see today, including G Scale.  Still today, all our new products and designs start with N Scale.

Here is a list of the products:

  • PASSENGER LED LIGHT BOARDS
  • CABOOSE LIGHTING BOARDS
  • 2, 3 and 7 LIGHT SIGNALS (LED and FIBER OPTIC)
  • 3-COLOR SEARCHLIGHT SIGNALS (FIBER OPTIC)
  • TURNOUT DWARF SIGNALS
  • SIGNAL CONTROLLERS ( For all the above)
  • RAILROAD CROSSING-IN-A-BOX
  • LED LIGHTING SYSTEMS for BUILDINGS, STREET LIGHTS and MORE..
  • SOUND MODULES
  • DCC DPDT RELAY CONTROLLER
  • PRECISION DETECTORs with 1mm precision and NO IR Ambient Light problems
  • 12VDC POWER MODULE

PASSENGER CAR LIGHTING

Image being able to light and remotely control all of you N scale passenger cars while they are moving down the rails.  Our LED lighting board all have DCC decoder built in!  You can set the brightness of both the main and the auxiliary rear red LEDs.  The rear red LEDs can be set to steady ON or Blink.  To control the entire train of passenger cars, set all the boards to the same address.  The just pressing F0 or the HEADLIGHT button on your controller.  Our boards have SuperCap(tm) capacitors and flicker reduction in the circuits.  Connect only two wires to the wheel pickup.  No wheel pick ups?  We invented the best “floating” wheel-pickup system in the market. They don’t pinch the axles or the wheels.

Installing the board yourself it’s really quite easy.  We have some instructional videos on our HOW TO pages.  The basic steps begin with soldering a couple of lead wires (we provide) to either the existing truck pickup or to the brass strips (“floating pickups”).  Next drill a small hole though the undercarriage and run the wires up to the main cabin.  Solder those two wires to the two tabs on the LED light board.  Then use double stick tape to fasten the board to the roof of the car.  That’s it! The board size is designed to fit perfectly for your size car.  We offer two standard lengths of 144 mm and 124 mm.  We also use our caboose board form time to time to work in Dome cars where our Dome LED Lighting Board can be used.

CABOOSE LIGHTING

Perfect fit for N Scale Caboose.  YES!  we created a 2.5mm high Lantern for N scale AND we design a way to easily mount it and add lighting with the use of a short length of .5mm Fiber Optic cable.  Then we designed a special REALLY small LED dongle to insert the fiber.  Connect the wires from the angle to the caboose board AUX pad.

The Kit includes:

  1.  DCC Decoder Light board with 3 attached white LEDS (2000k or 3000k) WITH wire
  2. 1 SuperCap Board
  3. One N Scale Lantern
  4. Length of .50 mm Fiber Cable
  5. One N Scale LED Dongle
  6. N Scale Floating Brass (for electrical pickup)
  7. One LED chip for use in the cupola – connects to the on aboard Decoder pad.

BLOCK SIGNALING SYSTEM

The Model Train Technology SIGNALING SYSTEM is both SIMPLE and ELEGANT.  While some modelers really like the challenge of installing complex signaling systems, most of us just want something that looks like the real thing without all the complicated electrical wiring and computers.

While we are primarily an electronics and software company, we have also designed a series of block signals that  look great and are simple to install.

Signals are available in both LED wired versions or with Fiber Optic cables.  We INVENTED the Fiber Optic Signal Controller with its unique manifold and pin system.  Simply insert the cable into the pin and insert the pin into one of the holes in the manifold.  No wiring or solder is need to connect the signals to the controller.

Our Signaling Starter Kit Comes with everything you need to get started:  (Power Module, Signal Controller, Signal of your choice, Precision Detector)

The Signal Controller allows you to select 8 different Aspect changing behaviors with the push of a button.

Lastly, all our signals have a magnetic base and mounting block.  This allows the signal to knock down but not break if you happen to nudge it!

You can also implement Latching without fuss.  Latching prevents the current block from changing to green if there is a train in the block ahead.  Once the block ahead is clear, the current signal with then change to green.

All signal controllers have a built-in DCC controller in case you want to use it.  That is, it’s there if you need it but yo DO NOT need DCC to implement our Signaling System.
