The photo to the right is of an N-scale Santa Fe E-8 with our Marslight Simulator in action. The headlight is using one of our N1022 2x3mm Super Incandescent LEDs, while the Marslight (upper) is using our Micro Super yellow-white LED. Click anywhere on the image to start the video.
Note: This video is not enhanced or retouched and is taken with full room lighting (not a darkened room like many videos showing lighting effects). Even with full light, the Mars effect is highly visible (notice the glint in the tracks).
To the right are two videos of our 3-LED Super-Marslight in operation in the nose of an N-scale F-unit. We believe this Simulator more accurately represents the actual Marslight motion than anything else we've seen. Check out the un-retouched videos and judge for yourself. We would appreciate your comments.
Note: In a smaller modeling scale such as N-scale, assembly of the LEDs to perform this effect will require precision soldering of small components (Nano LEDs). We would classify this as advanced soldering capability required.
