There is no need for batteries and the inevitable annoying replacement process after a few short months. The set contains a pre-assembled warm white LED strip lighting unit featuring. In rush current protection, which is useful to mitigate against a momentary overload on your track power supply.Spring loaded wheel pickups providing a superior electrical contact with the track. The SM-02 set includes a pair of metallic wheel pre-loaded with spring pickups. Self adhesive copper tape is provided to aid easy soldering of the wires and the wheel pickups. A very large stay alive capacitor, which acts as reserve energy storage.
When the track is switched off, or the coach is shunted into a siding with no power, the LEDs will slowly fade after 10 seconds or so. Once installed, the only maintenance is your regular track cleaning schedule. Full colour and clear instructions are included. It only takes about 15 minutes per coach, then you are done. 10 scale passengers to seat into your coach.
These can be cut down (usually the legs) and glued onto the seats to give the impression they are sitting. When complete, these passengers add that extra little bit of realism and really bring your lit coach to life. I have included a photograph of one of my coaches with the SM-02 and passengers installed so you can get an idea of how bright they are. The coach is not included in this kit. The set also works on a DC system although the brightness of the LEDs is directly proportional to the voltage on the track.
