AL3 - Constant Tail Light module with 1 Red Lantern shape LED, 1 White LED and battery

This module adds a constant red lantern as seen on the rear of trains or a constant white light for inside coaches or vans - self contained and easy to fit with no wires, switch or pickups.

This easy fit constant tail light module can be fitted into or under almost 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 should never need replacing. With the AL3 one of the LEDs looks like a very realistic lantern for the back of a wagon or coach with a red light and the other is a white LED which can be fitted in the roof of coaches to make effective coach lighting. You can connect 4 or 5 white LEDs to each AL3 to light a whole coach, such as our LED11 or LED12 packs of warm or cool LEDs.
