LH-50: Old Light – Lighthouse Beacon Simulator for Models


LH-50 Old Light, a lighthouse beacon simulator that brings the warm, comforting glow of classic lighthouse beacons to your model setups.

Authentic Lighthouse Glow

The LH-50 Old Light captures the nostalgic charm of historical lighthouses. Its gentle, warm white light brings your lighthouse models to life, replicating the timeless glow of old-fashioned warning beacons.

Lifelike Lighting Cycle

What sets the LH-50 apart is its realistic lighting cycle. Unlike modern beacons that turn off completely, the LH-50 gracefully dims, creating an anticipation before launching into its bright, guiding pulse. The light then steadily intensifies, shining brightly before slowly dimming back down. This cycle repeats every 20 seconds, mirroring the calming rhythm of real lighthouses.

What Makes the LH-50 Old Light Different?

The LH-50 Old Light stands out from other Lighthouse beacons on the market due to its attention to detail and user-friendly features:

  1. Realistic Flashing Effect:
    • The LH-50 replicates the slow, gentle flash of incandescent warning lights, creating a more authentic and visually appealing effect for your models.
  2. Advanced LED Technology:
    • Unlike many other products, the LH-50 uses advanced LED-based lighting for durability and longevity. The LED pulsates with a smooth turn-on and turn-off, closely mimicking the graceful glow of traditional incandescent lights.
  3. Versatile Applications:
    • The LH-50’s design allows it to be used in a variety of settings. Its adaptability is limited only by your creativity.
  4. Measured Flash Rate:
    • Unlike modern beacons that turn off completely, the LH-50 gracefully dims, creating an anticipation before launching into its bright, guiding pulse. The light then steadily intensifies, shining brightly before slowly dimming back down. This cycle repeats every 20 seconds, mirroring the calming rhythm of real lighthouses.
  5. DC Input Reverse Protection:
    • The LH-50 includes reverse protection for the DC input, ensuring that accidentally hooking up the power incorrectly won’t damage the device.
  6. Ease of Installation:
    • The LED attaches to the device with a plug connector, making it easy to route the wiring on your layout. Other Features such as screw terminal hookups make power connection straightforward. It also comes with a plastic holder for easy mounting.
  7. Customization Options:
    • The LH-50 offers a choice of 5mm, 3mm and Mini 805 LEDs in in Warm White. Similar to incandescent light
  8. Power Indicator:
    • A built-in power indicator lets you know when the beacon is active, taking the guesswork out of installation and operation.

These features collectively make the LH-50 a superior choice for model train enthusiasts who seek authenticity, reliability, and ease of use in their warning beacons.

Choosing the Right LED Size For Your Model Train Layout

When selecting the LED size for your LH-50, here are some recommendations to help you choose the best option:
