Introducing a new lighting technology from Model Rectifier Corporation…the Light Genie…

It is a unique system for controlling railroad lighting with next generation, 2.4 GHz radio control technology. Its wireless mobility, with a range of more than 90 ft., puts an end to being tethered to a stationary switch panel. And it offers a never before available set of lighting capabilities.  It works with all model railroads and operates with all scales. Light Genie is also suitable for beginner, intermediate and advanced modelers.  Uses your layout’s existing power supply, or order an optional power supply. Uses either LEDs or incandescent bulbs.

Priced at $49.98
