The advantage of this method is that no one needs to reach into the layout to uncouple cars and risking the possibility of damage to either the railcars or the layout scenery. If you are going to install magnets, it is best to decide where they will be needed early in the design stage or at least by the time of track construction as they will affect sub roadbed and roadbed.
The major pro of the pick system is that it allows for uncoupling at any location on the layout that can be reached. The cons are that reaching into the scene destroys the illusion of the model railroad, i.e. One thing that must be stated is that the use of either system is not exclusive; you can have both magnets and use a pick to uncouple cars.
Stationary locomotives seem to be a magnet for dust, especially when they’re just sat there on your layout between runs, or stored in a fiddle yard etc.
I took a lollipop or popsicle stick (drink stirrers will do just as well), cut a couple of short sections and glued together to make the box. Paint the box white, push the led in and paint the led where the leads are, not the leads only the red plastic. I took a short length of the red reflective tape and cut to size of the box as you can see in the photos. I find my box a little big and plan to make it smaller, and use a better material instead of wood, but as this is just a test unit, it’s fine for now. Okay now look where you want to place the unit and mark or remember where the led leads are touching the car.
To connect the LED to the batteries, I used a old computer connector as seen in the pics and just plugged the lead’s from the End Of Train Device into it.


Attach a 12 volt resistor to the plug wire to protect the led and bring it down to 1.5 volt for the led if you intend to power the LED from the track, or if you prefer, connect the wires from your connector to suitable battery box that will sit inside your wagon or freight car.
There have over the years been many different ways to making realistic loads for things such as Coal, Iron Ore, Timber, Ballast and so forth.
Measure the inside of the wagon to be fitted and then cut a piece of 6mm balsa that is smaller than the internal space so that the load is easy to move in and out. Next take a wide strip of Cling-film and place it over the wagon and push the balsa form down into the wagon until it sits fulling in place.
When the glue is solid pull out the whole load by putting the Cling-film ends together and pulling the load out. Now these can be mass produce or even have an assembly line if you have many of the same loads to make.
Truthfully I think were are all going to fast with this Id say we take baby steps on this one First we want it to still be dark for the frogs. Also I recommend to anyone doing FX like this that they only run specialty lighting for just a couple hours a night at most, so the majority of the night the frogs are in the dark, or only have a few glowing object around them, giving them plenty of nice dark spots to hide in.
I honestly don't know if the ripple lighting will be useful, or even if has a nice effect it may just be to bright and over power other fx. Contact the seller- opens in a new window or tab and request a shipping method to your location.
Since the vast majority of model railroaders now use either Kadee couplers or a clone, I will discuss the two major ways of uncoupling them. The couplers to be uncoupled are then stopped over the magnet, slack run in allowing the knuckles to move to opposite sides and allowing the engine to move one car away from the other. Location must considered, as placing a magnet closer than a car length to a curve can hinder uncoupling (possibly worse on curves bending to the left when coming off the straight section of track.
Many operators feel that this helps to simulate a brakeman working the cut lever on a real railcar.
Over time it can make your prized loco’s and rolling stock look decidedly lack-lustre, unless you spend an couple of hours a week painstakingly cleaning all your stock with everything from proprietary wipes, to damp cloths, paint brushes to compressed air. I know some modellers religiously put all their stock away into collectors cases etc, but sometimes the budget won’t stretch to those, and besides, they take up even more room. There’s also instructions included on how to trim the longer version down to fit any locomotive you choose.
There is a lip on the led close to the led’s which stops it pushing all the way through.
Sometimes the glue doesn’t make it all the way through the material which easily fixed by repeating step 4.


If yo figure the lil men in the pics are about 1cm-1inch tall that should give you some idea of scale. Might be necessary to install water proof under lighting in the false bottom for some translucent material. I was hoping someone had one, or had seen one in operation and could comment on how likely they thought it was to work and provide the desired effect at much closer operating distances from light to projection area. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
The magnets will allow you to set you couplers for delay so that you can push a car to a desired spot but this will not work on a track with several spots that need to have cars not coupled together when properly spotted thereby requiring multiply magnets on a track. I personally have always been a little on the lazy side, and just left loco’s parked up in a convenient spot on the track, ready to go next time I want to power up the layout.
Longer loco’s can also be catered for by cutting away small sections of the roll-up doors in the dust cover ends to allow for buffers and couplings. I can see lots of uses for these plus, lots of other applications for flashing LED’s on layouts. I personally make my own loads and in modelling an area with lots of coal traffic this means that I have to make a lot.
So to me it looks like much of this stuff is large enough to be useful in vivs, and the prices look pretty good to as do the products themselves IMO I encourage people to search other such sites for more options. My guess is given the output of the lights and average tank heights you'll probably need a pond with around 1 sq foot of surface area for these to be useful, but again this is just an educated guess at best.
And you can grab the light and just pull it off when you need and can plug it back in just as easy. You will end up with black melted plastic and also a way bigger hole’s than you wanted to!) Us some elbow grease with a pair of pliers and slowly push threw the car body. Now some bits of coal will fall off but thats nothing to worry about because thats why we painted the balsa. Although small amounts of club soda containing quinine(which is also used as a fish medication) may give viv water a light luminescence under uv light even at extremely diluted animals safe dosages.
Now we take some PVA and apply it around the entire edge of the coal and take a finger to wipe any excess away and force the glue into and gaps making sure that everything on the side is covered in glue.
