New light bar for O gauge coaches from Heljan

31 August 2020
As the summer draws to a close and the dark nights of the autumn and winter approach, Heljan has released a simple way to light up your coaches.

Produced with Train-Tech, these light bars do not require any wiring, soldering or track pick-ups and offer a friction-free solution for interior lighting of carriages.

A built-in sensor detects the slightest movement to switch the lights on when the train moves and capacitors ensure that they remain lit for several minutes after it comes to a stand. Standard coin batteries provide many hours of illumination and replacements are cheap and widely available.

Heljan's new O gauge Mk2/Mk2a coaches, due out in 2021, have been designed for simple drop-in installation of the light bars. Older coaches such as the BR Mk1s will require minor modifications to the interior unit before use.
