This HO system is designed to integrate with your stall motor switch machines, most notably the Tortoise, Walthers (depending on use of the Auxiliary control), Rapido Railcrew and Cobalt switch machines, without soldering wires, to provide signals to the oncoming locomotives.
Customers have stated this is the simplest system to install in the market.
The Tall signal needs a 1/8" drill to mount the 12mm long stub into the layout.
The system consists of:
- 3 Tall signals with 2 pairs of 5ft of fiber each
- 1 Signal Controller unit
- 2 Quick Splice Connectors- Suitcase Style
No power supply is needed, it takes a small current from the supply to the switch machine.
Dimension of Tall Signal:
- Height: 2 3/4” (70mm)
- Width of Signal: 6.7mm
- Diameter of Fiber: 1mm
- Stub: 12mm
- Lenght of Fiber: 5+ft
This is especially helpful for operating sessions where it is very useful to see which way the dispatcher has a switch set.

This will not work with the solenoid turnout controllers such as the Atlas switches.
