Most RAM Track products are adaptable to all popular scales, N through G. Some are more scale specific due to bulb or speaker size limitations. Our products have an established reputation for innovation and dollar value. All RAM Track products are made in the U.S.A
LED** & CLASSIC INCANDESCENT LIGHTING SYSTEMS
RAM Track introduced white LEDs to the hobby industry in 1998. Since that time we have produced thousands of systems that have set the standard for high brightness, long life and low current drain. The standard track power sets will safely handle up to 12 volts DC, common for most models and power from on board DCC circuits. High voltage sets are produced for G scale, direct to rail DCC and other applications where up to 24 volts may be applied. The use of 3MM or 5MM LEDs and additional clear or colored lense caps provides ultimate adaptability to space and scale requirements of individual models. RAM 101 Lite Pipe fiber optics can be used with any of the LED systems.
RAM 55 SINGLE ADJUSTABLE "STROBE" LIGHT. This device simulates a strobe light for engine mount or End of Train use.

RAM Track manufacturers both analogue (51, 52, 53, 54) and digital (**) sound devices in order to provide accurate sounds and good dollar value. The analogue systems are supplied with scale appropriate, sized speakers. All of the acoustically recorded, digital systems are supplied with a 2" speaker which can be replaced by the modeler with a 1 " speaker for on board HO use. On board sounds ("0B") are the sounds that should be heard from the model in motion. Trackside ("T") sounds give that final touch of realism as the train moves past various buildings and scenery on your layout. If you want to hear any of our sounds visit our web site.
OB RAM 51 STEAM ENGINE SOUND, HO. This on board device provides chuff and hiss sound that is electronically triggered by the turn of the axle for proper cadence with the engine's drive wheels. Once adjusted it will not go out of cadence when cars are added or removed from the train, the way that competitors' voltage driven systems react. The 13/16"x 3 1/4" amplifier board contains a switch. Power comes from a 9 volt ALKALINE battery so that there is full sound from the first turn of the wheel. System comes with a 1" speaker and additional speakers can be added. The entire system is small enough to fit in some tenders or in a car directly behind the engine. Use a RAM 59 for rail power.
OB RAM 52 STEAM ENGINE SOUND, 0. This is the same system electronically as the HO unit described above but has a 2" speaker which creates greater volume and can fit easily into most 0 or G gauge tenders and cars. Use a RAM 59 for rail power.
OB RAM 53 STEAM ENGINE SOUND, G. This is the same system electronically as the HO unit described above but has a 3" speaker which creates greater volume and can fit easily into most G gauge tenders and cars. Especially effective for outdoor use. Use a RAM 59 for rail power.

in conjunction with other RAM Track products as well as with accessories from
RAM 59 RAIL POWERED 9 VOLT SOURCE. Designed to power RAM 9 volt lighting and sound systems, this device will work with AC or DC powered trains up to 28 volts. With an output of 1 amp, it is both overload and short circuit protected. It must be connected to a power pick up truck for input from the rails. The size is 1" x 1 3/4" x 1 1/8" and a screw terminal strip is provided for simple installation.
RAM 60 ECONO REVERSING DEVICE. This device optically controls the reversing action of a train on a single track. As supplied, end to end length can be up to 10 feet (can be extended) and the train can be delayed at each end for up to 45 seconds.
RAM 76 XTRA CONTROL. Modelers are now able to turn on lights, sound homs, and operate a wide variety of accessories both onboard and trackside without the large investment in DCC systems. This accessory radio control system has a mini receiver (1" x 2 1/2" x 7/8") and a "key fob" transmitter that provide a range to 100 feet. The receiver provides BOTH a momentary and a latching control so that you can trigger one device, such as a whistle, for a specific time while leaving a second device, such as lights, turned on until you decide to turn it off. Each function can carry a load up to 1 amp. There is provision to simply individualize each radio so that over 200 can be operated simultaneously without interference. The receiver requires 9 to 18V which can be supplied by a battery or rail power from a device such as the RAM 59. The transmitter comes with a replaceable battery.
RAM 85 STATION STOPPER. This device stops a train and delays it for an adjustable time up to 1 minute before the train continues on. The circuit accommodates attachment of RAM Track digital sounds such as RAM 88 "All Aboard" or custom announcements. See custom sound service details above.
RAM 87 12 VOLT DC POWER REGULATOR. Provides a filtered, regulated, short circuit and thermally protected DC source to 1 1/2 amps from your train power packs AC tap. It can be used to operate DC accessories on your railroad such as RAM Track Digital Sounds, Station Stopper and Structural Lights. Note that many "DC" train power packs NEED to be properly filtered to provide PURE DC.
RAM 102 INFRA RED SWITCH. This system uses infra red, eliminating magnets and minimum light requirements. It senses motion, such as a passing train, and switches devices up to 1/2 amp such as RAM digital sounds. For convenient, trackside installation, the IR sender and receiver are each on 1 foot cables attached to the circuit board and powered by 5 to 24 volts D.C.
RAM 111 LIGHT ACTIVATED SWITCH. A small photo cell senses a passing train and switches devices up to 1/2 amp such as RAM digital sounds. Light sensitivity is adjustable on the 1" x 1" circuit board powered by 5 to 24 volts DC.
RAM 112 REED SWITCH AND MAGNET (2 sets). A 1" reed switch is attached to 1' of wire to be triggered by a magnet.
RAM 113 TILT SWITCH. This 1/2" cube is mounted in rolling stock to randomly trigger devices such as RAM digital sounds.
RAM 117 DUAL SENSOR LIGHT ACTIVATED SWITCH. All the same features as the RAM 111 but has two small photo cells, perfect for activating a crossing signal or for similar needs. Two 1/2 amp outputs can operate RAM 119 Crossing Lights and the RAM 114 Crossing Bell or any similar devices.
RAM 158 SIGNAL DRIVER W/ TRAIN DETECTOR Able to control 2 bulbs or LEDs, a photocell detects the train and turns your green signal to red, adjustable up to 30 seconds after the train has passed. Powered by 9-18V, DC.
PLASTIC MODEL LIGHTS
High brightness LEDs are used in the following systems. This eliminates any possible heat distortion of your plastic model. The 3 volt battery box (two AA cells) can often be mounted in a model or be made part of its display base or diorama. Smaller 3 volt batteries can be substituted. The use of new "white" LEDs provides accurate head lights etc. T1 LEDs are
approximately 1/8" (3MM) diameter; T1 3/4 LEDs are approximately 3/16" diameter (5MM). Smaller "lights" can be simply replicated with our RAM 101 Light Pipe kit. All systems are completely assembled with 1 foot of high quality, flexible #30 wire to each LED.
