Dear Ms. Mort:

In your letter dated September 24, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise is described as a Power Pack for Train Sets item #583405. A sample was submitted. A sample is marked "Hobby Transformer." It has an input of 120 VAC 50/60Hz and an output open circuit of 18 VAC and 16 VDC 13W. There is one set of connections for the DC train and a second set of connections for accessories that run on AC. The principal function of the unit is as a rectifying power supply for DC model trains.

The applicable subheading for the Power Pack for Train Sets will be 8504.40.9510, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "Rectifiers and rectifying apparatus: Power supplies: With a power output not exceeding 50W." The rate of duty will be 1.8 percent ad valorem.
