This is a fully self-contained color wireless camera in model train HO scale Hi-Cube boxcar. The Hi-Cube boxcar allows you more flexibility than a camera in an model train engine. The Hi-Cube gives you a higher viewing vantage point. You can push the GadgetCAM boxcar ahead of your locomotive giving you the view point of the Engineer. This is "Engineer View". You can pull it behind giving you a trailing "Conductor View". Likewise you can have it mid-train pointing either forward or backwards. If you place this behind low top cars, flatbeds, gondolas, etc it provides an unique view from the midpoint of your model train. Even better, the GadgetCAM exclusive mount allows you to easily turn the camera to the left or right and drop the vantage point down allowing you to view out the side of the boxcar as if you were riding in the car yourself and looking out the door. That's our "Hobo View"
Gadget Tom's GadgetCAM is a CMOS Color Wireless 1.2GHz camera packed into an Athearn HO scale 40', Hi-Cube boxcar. The camera transmits (1.2GHz wireless) to a receiver that can then be connected to a TV, VCR, Video Camera, or computer via a RCA connectors.
The Camera comes pre-mounted in a "Ready to Roll" HO Scale model train Athearn Hi-Cube 40' boxcar. This includes McHenry couplers and metal wheels The boxcar is pre-assembled and ready to roll, ,just install the 9 volt battery. (included)
Sorry, N scale railroaders, there's no way I can pack all that in an N scale boxcar! Yet....
The camera focus is adjustable (pre-adjusted for about 2') and is powered by 9 volt battery in the boxcar. The receiver is powered by a 110VAC power pack. (included) The boxcar is fully self contained and will operate for approximately 2 hours continuously on a single battery. (A separate power pack is included to power the Camera off 110VAC in a stationary situation if you like.)
