This listing is for (1) sheet of unformed SBS4DCC N Scale Kato Pickup Contact Connector Strip. 

This run (Feb. 2015) features a few improvements including...

  • More parts! Enough for 10 cars, typical of most kato sets.
  • Repositioned tabbing for easier assembly.
  • Deeper forming marks for clearer bend line.


The sheet includes (20) SBS4DCC N Scale Kato Pickup Contact Connector Strip. The SBS4DCC N Scale Kato Pickup Connector Strip has been designed to work with Kato N Scale passenger cars and models the have contact rails built into the car floor.  The contacts are made from photo-etched phosphor-bronze and are shipped flat.

The parts in this listing require just a bit of secondary processing before they are ready for use. First, they must be formed into shape. This can be accomplished using a variety of tools ranging from a pair of pliers to a Micro-Mark 16101 Mini Bending Brake. Your choice. Second, and completely optional, heat-treat the parts by baking in the oven at 450F for 45 minutes. This will help them retain their shape over time.

This product is perfect for use in making sound cars and for adding interior lighting to your models.  It is a replacement for similar contact strips not otherwise sold sepersately.

The uses for this contact are endless. Have fun!
