I stumbled across this and thought id give it a shot, at 4.00 ea. cant go wrong. 

Its a blinking red led module with light. It takes 2 AA batts and has an on/off switch right on the battery case.  I thought it would make a cheap and cool EOD. just need a box car or gondola to fit the module in.

radio shack cat no.- 276-299

i just happened to snap a shot when it was blinking (wasnt hard) to show its color. Its bright and blinks about once a sec. not too fast that it looks rediculous.

thought id share, but if its already known than sorry.  enjoy.

You might be interested that Dave at Ozark now has a picture on his web site of the FRED that I did for him of a BNSF prototype that Mac and I found at a train show at Fullerton.

I just visited Ozark Miniatures and ordered the new FRED. Judging by the picture, it appears to come with the LED, a battery holder, and a slide switch which I'm sure I won't use.

Here is one of John's EOT's (Ozark) on a LGB boxcar. It has had a little more detail added with the addition of the hose,also available at Ozark.

I'm glad Ozark picked up and is adding onto John's old "Train Model Supply" line....
