Track Magnet - Clip on
This Track Magnet is designed for Large Scale Code 332 Train track with "European" tie spacing of approx 12 ties per foot; 0.62" (15.5mm) between ties. It clips in between the ties and under the rails for secure and precise positioning of the track magnet; 0.51" (13mm) from track center, and can be quickly and easily moved when needed. The magnet is located off center so it can be oriented to activate one of two functions; e.g. "Whistle on the right", "Bell on the left".
It comes with a 1/2" diameter X 1/4"H ceramic magnet installed. A train mounted reed switch (available separately) should be mounted within 0.25" of the rail tops.
Track magnets can be used to trigger sounds using a MyLocoSound or other sound systems, and automated station stops and automatic train separation using the RailBoss 4 Plus control system.
