Build your own Track Odometer car with our new Track Odometer assembly. Finally, answer the question of "How many feet of track do you have?". A reed switch triggered by magnets on the wheel of a car counts pulses to indicate feet traveled on the on-board display. Reset it to zero using the reset button, send it around the mainline, and read out the result! A built-in calibration routine allows you to install this tool on any car with any wheel diameter.

We use track magnets to trigger our sound boards and do automated station stops. Until now, there were only two options to acquire track magnets (that I know of); PIKO makes some nice ones, but they are pretty pricey, or make your own. You can simply glue a magnet to a track tie, but what if you need to move it? I've made my own for years with a piece of styrene and magnet that slips under the rails, but they tended to move around, either triggering the wrong sound, or hitting wheels.
Here is a lower cost alternative that works great and is easy to use. It locks into position, so the magnet is always perfectly located, yet it is easy to remove and turn around or move it to a new location. Che ck it out ...
This little board will make your building come to life by turning lights in each room on/off at random to indicate activity. It can control 12V LED strips, individual LEDs, or Sound Clip Modules. LSCM
Arduino users will recognize the control board, and will be able to create their own custom programs, if desired.
Our new Sound Clip Module will add life to your garden railroad scenes. Piano music coming from the saloon, sawing noise from the sawmill, mine blasts form the mine, etc. Your imagination is the only limit. We have a large library of sounds to choose from, but we can program your Sound Clip for any mp3 file of your choosing. The sound tracks can play in a continuous loop, or be trigger to play once via any kind of switch contact.
Purchase to board assembly, or already installed in a box with speaker.

MyLocoSound has developed a new product, the Light Diesel, which runs on the existing Blue sound card. It is a dedicated product which is aimed at the various small industrial diesels which are coming onto the market. It uses 100% recorded sounds. Two different engines and two different horns can be configured by the user using the standard IR remote.
Note: This Light Diesel version is in addition to the standard Diesel, Electric, and Steam version, all still available at the low price of $79.
For all those folks that know you like trains, but don't know what to get you, or how to get it.
