has received a number of reports of melted roofs resulting from
the use of the 11-204 / 11-206 Passenger Car Lighting Kits with
THAT THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE LIGHTING KITS CLEARLY STATE A MAXIMUM
OPERATING VOLTAGE OF 12 VOLTS DC.
DCC operates at a higher voltage and is an AC waveform these lighting
kits should not be used on DCC without adding lighting decoders
or circuitry which will provide voltage within specs for these
units. Proper installation and use of these lighting kits has
not resulted in any reports of problems before the advent of DCC;
therefore no warranty consideration will be entertained for such
damage. If available, decorated or undecorated parts may be purchased
per Kato USA's normal policies
for sale of body shells.
