Super capacitors are included (optional on most competitors products)
16 Leds for even lighting (competitors products have less)
One Farad capacitance on board (competitors have much less)
Limited maximum 0.2 Ampere current when charging for DCC compatibility. Typical current draw is 0.05 Ampere after charging is complete.
Uses super-capacitors, and regulators to provide constant lighting. Instructions and most parts for installation in cars without pickups are provided. Conductive wheels are required. Can also use existing pickups. The circuit board can be shortened to as little as 4″ by simply cutting the board with diagonal cutters or a razor saw (the fiberglass circuit board will dull most saws). Adjustable from dim to super bright while installed in the car. When adjusted for normal light levels the car will remain lit at constant brightness for up to a 30 seconds after power is removed.

HO Scale Passenger Car Light Board
5 based on
“I just installed 10 of them in Athearn heavyweights with very little modification. Used 6 wheel Walthers trucks with the screws attached for easy hook-up. I am now ordering more. well worth the investment. They look great with the constant light. also very very easy to hookup red flasher in the observation cars.”
“I bought one each of the HO and N passenger car lighting boards to test. Put the HO board in a Walthers 932-6004 Amtrak Amfleet Coach. Soldered the leads to the metal leaves that hold the wheels in place. Only minor annoyance was your instructions don't point at the lead locations on the board in the photos, which are also pretty blurry, so it took some bright light and magnifying glasses to hunt them down. I finally found T+ and T- adjacent to the capacitors. Used some spare foam to make columns to wedge the board against the ceiling. The lighting is diffuse with absolutely ZERO flickering. Best I've ever seen. Now I'll order more.”
