Search Light Signal Features:   

  • HO  Search Light signals have one LED lamp per target. Each LED is a tri-color, four wire, solid state.
    • Each LED is capable of displaying green, yellow and red aspects.
    • All signals come with current limiting resistors for 5v or 12v operation.
    • LEDS are common anode wired. Connecting either lead to negative(-) will display the corresponding color.

Color Light Signal Features: HO

  • Color Light signals have one LED for each color aspect (green, yellow, or red).
  • LEDs are common anode wired. Bringing a lead to ground(-) will display the corresponding color.
  • All signals come with current limiting resistors for 5v or 12v operation.

Built-ups Features:HO

  • All signals come completely assembled.
  • All block signals come painted with black targets and silver base, mast, ladder, plate forms, and finials.
  • All signals are pretested.
  • Each signal includes  installation and operating instruction as well as current limiting resistor.

Crossing Signals

  • Led lights
  • Three wire with common positive
  • Crossing signal with gates includes:
    • crossing signal as above plus gate and .20 actuating rod (does not include drive unit or other devices necessary to activate gate Tortoise switch machine with 800-8100 Gate/Semaphore Actuator recommended.

Traffic Lights: HO Scale

 Signal Control Units

Grade Crossing Flasher Unit Features HO N or O (CF):

  • This unit controls the alternating illumination of Grade Crossing Signals.
  • 12-18v operation drive LED type crossing signals
  • built-in current limiting resistors
  •  can be used with DSD for activation or use other detection devices or simple on/off switch.
  • will control Tortoise switch machine to activate crossing gates as well as other features of CF or CFD (Tortoise and other necessary activation devices not included)

Grade Crossing Flasher/Detector Unit Features HO N or O (CFD):

  • This unit has the same features as the Grade Crossing Flasher unit with a built-in detector.
  • Output and input for double track mains to activate CFD from either track.

Detector/Signal Driver Unit (DSD) Features (HO N or O):

  • Current Sensing type detector
    The DSD provides detection and signal logic for either search light or color light signals for a single block of track.
  • Compatible with DC or DCC systems. Can be used on any system with 9-18v and a maximum 4 amp output.
  • will provide detection and signal driving for one block of track.
  • bi-directional providing detection and signaling on single-track mains in both directions.
  • drives LED type signals. (Search Light: bi color 3 wire, common cathode; D-Type-common anode). It will not drive two wire bi-color LEDs).
  • can control either search light or color light type signals. Current limiting resistors built in for signals.
  • Uses 12-1812v DC for operation.
  • Complete manual for installation and operation


    Detector/Signal Driver Unit (DSD-IF) Features (HO N or O):

  •   InfraRed Detector that fits between  the rails featuring detection in all light conditions. No cutting of rails.The DSD provides detection and signal logic for either search light or color light signals for a single block of track.
  • Compatible with all train control systems.
  • will provide detection and signal driving for one block of track.
  • bi-directional providing detection and signaling on single-track mains in both directions.
  • drives LED type signals. (Search Light: bi color 3 wire, common cathode; D-Type-common anode). It will not drive two wire bi-color LEDs).
  • can control either search light or color light type signals. Current limiting resistors built in for signals.

Crossing Flasher Units All Scales  

Product ID* Description Price Buy
CF Crossing Signal Flasher Unit $17.00
CFD Crossing Signal Flasher/Detector Unit $20.00
CB Crossing Bell Circuit $25.00
CFD-IF Crossing Flasher/Detector Unit Infra/Red Detection $24.00
* Different companies wire crossing signals differently. Some have the common wire connected to ground and some have the common wire connected to positive. Make sure you know and understand how you crossing signal is connected to the common. Our Crossing Signal Flasher unit and Crossing Signal Flasher/Detector units are universal. By placing or removing a jumper block, the units can be used for common ground or common positive operation.
