Model Railroad Signal Systems has signal control systems and DCC auto reverse circuits for use with any scale of model railroading.

No matter what scale you model, a modular signal system will bring your layout or Free-mo module to life with realistic operating signals.

If DCC auto reverse is what you are looking for, click on the menu link above to access two types of DCC auto reverse boards.

The Free-mo section currently has 6 boards that are compatible with the Free-mo Modular Signal System (MSS) version 2 which was released in the fall of 2014.

    .: Signal Boards:

Installation instructions can be downloaded for each board for easy installation.

FTM-4 Turnout Module

May 2023

The FTM-2 is being replaced by the new FTM-4 board. The operation of the circuit remains mainly the same as before with the exceptions of a few extra features. The new board has LED indicators for the optical sensor and turnout position. It also has an additional terminal to supply 5v to the FC-51 sensor. The main difference is most of the onboard components are now surface mounted which saves on assembly time.

GCC-1 Grade Crossing Controller

October 2023

Now Availble... A grade crossing controller that operates like the prototype. This unit is being sold with or without servo motors for operating gates at a crossing.

New Infrared Sensor

August 2022

The original IR sensor supplied with some of the boards have become difficult to source and their prices have increased significantly. An new IR sensor, the FC-51, is now being supplied. Installation instructions are posted on the webpages for the boards that require IR sensors.
