In response to customer requests for "kits" of parts to make complete readers and for a system starter kit so we are now offering:
A single head RFID reader stack http://www.modelrailroadcontrolsystems.com/complete-rfid-reader-with-one-reader-head/
A dual Head RFID reader stack http://www.modelrailroadcontrolsystems.com/complete-rfid-reader-with-two-reader-heads/
