LightBoard for RailSmith Cars-3Pack

In stock


These LightBoards are expected June 2023!


This new light board fits all 80′ RailSmith passenger cars.

We are excited to meet the need to light our cars. It was important to us to create a light that maintains that real appearance we all love and feel is captured in RailSmith passenger cars. If you want bright lights, these are not for you. If you want a real feel, we think that you will be very pleased with what we have created.

The roof of the cars comes off and this new LightBoard drops in. No need to wire. All RailSmith cars come with metal wheels and electrical pick up already installed from the factory!

This new RailSmith LightBoard features:

Drop in easy installation. Track powered.

Dim lighting for a prototypical look.

Warm lights, (not bright white).

Capacitance to help reduce flicker.

Works with DC or DCC 


We will provide a video link here when we have it to show the ease of installing.

This selection is for a pack of three LightBoards. When we have more photos we will provide. Product stock will be limited on these and based on your preorders. Future stock may come, based on the need. We cannot say as of this launch that they will be an item always in stock.

SPECIAL NOTE: Our Blunt End Sleepers already have a rear facing light, so these new boards will not work on that car.

The photo here is actually a painting by my good friend Mike Danneman. For me, it inspires interior car lighting and a realistic view. This painting of the California Zephyr is not an announcement that we are doing this train or car. Kato has already done that!

Just a quick note to acknowledge receipt of my AFT Tool Car. Thanks so much for another Outstanding Piece of Craftsmanship! The AFT is my most prized “N” Scale collection. I had perceived that there were delays in getting this last car into our hands, but thought it was a problem with China. Your letter…

To say the least this is a HUGE development for N-scale and I, along with a number of others, are indebted to you for making these cars possible. Thanks so very much!!!


AFT is a real dream come true for me. Thanks for all your hard work!


“You seem to be the shining light in an industry that’s seen a lot of change since the early 2000’s when I was last in the hobby”.


“You have received many compliments when I have run my RailSmith cars with my friends.”

And as for your goal of 5 releases a year, I admire your ambition, but I won’t hold it against you if you fall short on that accomplishment.  I’m just thrilled you’re doing such an AWESOME job of releasing this amazing train, and hope you don’t stop until it’s all done!

I got my new Santa Fe business cars, they are superb and worth the wait ten times over.


I just received the “The Great Locomotive Chase” set from the Walt Disney Family Museum. Very nicely done!


My kids absolutely love the Christmas cars! The C.K. Holiday, along with the Carolwood and Disney cars makes a wonderful Christmas train. It made many a loop under our tree this year.

Thank you for producing such well researched quality offerings.
