One great feature of all RailPro products with Direct Radio is that
their program can be updated and their files updated too. So
you can use the CI-1 Computer Interface with HC Simulator software
and update the program in the LM-3S to add True Motion Technology(TM)
and you can load the Ultimate Series Sound file of your choice. Then
you use button setup to add a 'Load' Button and a 'Brake' button to
access those new capabilities. Complete instructions are
What about RF interference?
Our RailPro system uses
advanced technology like cell phones where many can be in use at the same time in
the same area. Our products are not like the easily disturbed RF products found
in many toys. This makes it unlikely that you will experience any
interference. Our products have worked successfully around wireless computer
networks cell phones etc. Any RF product may have, or cause, some type of
interference but because of the technology that we use it is very
unlikely. As of the time this posted, we have sold RailPro for many
years and have not had a single confirmed instance of RF
RailPro work in brass shell locomotives?
Yes. Several of our customers have said that they work
in brass and full metal locomotives. The Model RR News installed one in a full
die cast locomotive and told us that it worked well.
RailPro locomotive modules will likely not have as much range in metal body (brass) locomotives
because the RF signal may get attenuated.
Is RailPro available to other countries besides
No. Currently Ring Engineering only
ships RailPro products with Direct Radio to the USA. RailPro products were
designed to pass worldwide communication standards including USA, Canada,
Australia, Europe, and Japan. However, currently we have only had RailPro tested
for compliance with USA standards. RailPro is compliant with USA FCC standards.
Made In USA
Not recommended for persons under the age of 14
