Installation instructions

  1. Locate the center the railroad tie where you want to activate your sound or function.
  2. Clean the top of the tie with rubbing alcohol and paper towel to remove any oil, grease and dirt.
  3. Use the hole in the center of some ties to locate the center point of the tie.
  4. Place the magnet to either side of the center of the tie as shown below (left for bell and right for horn/whistle)
  5. Peel off the red cover protecting the 3M outdoor adhesive pad
  6. Press firmly down on top of magnet to secure in desired location.

Note that some locos require placement on straight sections of track due to the location of the locos reed switches but in all cases the magnets must be placed to either side of the center of the railroad ties as shown below.

Use on both Analog and DCC/MTS layouts.

Track magnets are usually placed where a railroad engineer would blow his whistle/horn (station entrances, crossings, blind curves and tunnels. Use track magnets before stations to automatically sound your locos bell to alert passengers.

In this way every loco follows the rules of the railroad even if the engineer might be busy with other chores.
