Stop Thief from Stop Theft
New Security Tagging System
Stop Theft Models have introduced a security tagging system designed specifically for railway modellers. The system is based around a simple to install miniature transponder that can be hidden in the locomotive and programmed with a unique code to give permanent identification.
The digital transponder is smaller than a fivepence piece and can be concealed on even the smallest of locomotives. Once the registration form is returned, the owner’s details are entered onto a central database. The transponder works by emitting a signal when passed over by a police scanner. With over 3,000 scanners already issued nationwide, not only can recovered items be examined, but pro-active ‘sweeps’ of fairs and swapmeets can be carried out by ‘loading’ a scanner with details of items stolen in the area, making it even more difficult to sell on stolen goods. The price is £12.99 per unit with discounts available for those wishing to purchase a number of tags to protect their collection.
