The first time I walked into Josta's train layout this is what greeted me. One awesome SP Gyralite.

Enjoy

This bulletin just in.

Here's the news, with the news, a FLASH BULLETIN. lol

To back up the history of the gyralite's.

Here is some technical support:

In case you were about to ask whether or not this is a collectible or collector's piece. What do you think? This is certainly worth bidding on. See above post by John.

Yes!

Do keep in mind there is still a fair number of them out there. Translated, that should ease the price down a little.

The last Gyralite in eBay sold for $380. While they're not "rare" per se, they're definitely a desirable item, me thinks, like marker lights, passenger step stools or switch stands.

Gyralites are still made today by Trans-Lite Inc. But I understand they're not railfan-friendly, and they look more modern than the originals.

Here's a brochure sheet from the original manufacturer: 20585 Gyralite - Gyrating Warning Lights

Want a brand-new unit? NEW Trans-Lite Gyralite Signal Light for EMD Locomotive . Only $1,300.
