Description:

This is ultimate lighting system for analog or PWM track powered trains designed and made in the USA by the Shourt Line. This is the only lighting system to provide 5 minutes of full lighting per 8 LEDs at low track voltage or no track voltage, automatically turns on lights of your choice when the train stops and hides all the electronics inside a weatherproof case that looks like a breakman's box under any short car.

The system includes the following: SL under car weatherproof case with the following functions; a 3 Amp throttle & LED controller/dimmer, a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Source) with super capacitor buffer for 3 minutes of lighting at at low or no track power, an always on output and auxiliary output that automatically slowly comes on when the train stops (track power < ~2 volts) and goes off when the train starts (track power > ~2 volts), input for DC (analog) or PWM track power or any source of power DC, PWM, DCC or Battery power up to 30 volts, All input and outputs have screw terminals for easy installation. The lighting system operates with the included LGB train controller or any other type of train controller; analog (DC), PWM DC, AC or DCC.

Use the Always On Outputs for interior lighting and the Aux. Output that slowly goes on when the train stops for the exterior lighting so that passengers can safely enter and exit the train. The Automatic Auxiliary Output adds a unique animated lighting effect that works every time the train stops and starts!

The lighting system is up to 94% efficient so that even the LGB starter set power pack can power a loco and two cars with 12 LEDs plus additional car lighting for future expansion of your railroad. The lighting system is also unique in not only operating at 1/6th the power of any other available type but it also works at the lowest track voltage or no track voltage, it fact it operates up to 3 minutes without any track power! Power up to 300 LEDs with the Shourt Line lighting system, that is over 40 cars with 6 LEDs in each car!

The SL-6525911 Case comes with 2 screws for mounting on an LGB short car in minutes. It also can be used with other cars using the supplied mounting screws. For long length cars use the SL-8525911 version that has the same features and a case with terminals on the long side for easily wiring on long cars.

The SL LED controller includes a dimmer to adjust your choice of lighting level and works at full brightness at slow loco speeds (low track voltage) or no track power for up to 3 minutes via the built in UPS (Uninterrupted Power Source) that utilizes a DC to DC converter for charging a Super Capacitor Bank at up to 94% efficiency. No more dark passenger cars when you stop at the station.

Mount on the bottom any short car (LGB passenger car shown above - sold separately) in minutes using the mounting screws and mounting holes found on LGB short cars. For non-LGB cars drill a pilot hole in the bottom of the car after placing the SL-6525911 in the center of the bottom as shown above. Test the movement of the trucks to ensure the wheel do not touch the controller case. To dim the LED brightness, place the care on its side as shown above and use a small screw driver to turn the SL-6525911's LED dimmer control (see red circle in photos) counter-clockwise as shown above. See the instructions included in the set for before turning the control clockwise to make the LEDs brighter. (Power connectors and train with track not included)
