Scale Sound Systems is pleased to announce a new lighting detail for your HO locomotives!


Differing in prototype variation from the Details West pilot-mount ditch-lights, these pilot-mounted ditch-lights are available in two variations;


• Bracket-mounted

• Direct-mounted


I designed these to facilitate converting a large fleet of FEC locomotives which utilize this specific ditch-light design. Other prototypes used them as well. The prototype FEC installed the bracket-mounted lights on the front while the direct-mount lights were installed on the rear.


Designed using prototype measurements, these are quite possibly the most detailed ditch-lights available in HO scale. While my photos do not do them justice, much of the detail shown in the 3D rendering is visible to the naked eye (provided your eye-sight is good enough). This includes two-part hinge detail on one si
