AL4 - Flashing Tail Light module with 2 Red Lantern shape LEDs and battery
This module adds a flashing red lantern as seen on the rear of most modern trains - self contained and easy to fit with no wires, switch or pickups needed. This AL4 version is similar to the established AL1 but has a slightly faster flash rate at 2 flashes per second which is authentic to the 'Dorman' type LED tail lamps in current use on the modern railway. As developed for the 'Oak Road' layout by Mike Buick raising awareness for Meningitis.
This easy fit flashing tail light module can be fitted into any wagon or coach. It does not require pick-ups from the track or an on-off switch as it run for hundreds of hours on a small battery and automatically switch on when the wagon or coach moves and switches off a few minutes after it stops!
2 LED lights are supplied in the set which never need replacing and look like a very realistic lantern on the back of a wagon or coach.
