The eLink And Railmaster Digital Combo Pack from Hornby, provides you with their new control system allowing you to computerize your layout.

Using just the power of a PC to control a model railway has taken a giant leap forward this year with the introduction of the unique Hornby DCC 'eLink' interface unit.

Working with the amazing 'RailMaster' software and for unleashing the full power of PC control the Hornby ‘eLink’ is placed in between the PC and the layout.

Once connected all control of the layout is passed to the PC or laptop.  It really is that simple!

The 'eLink' is capable of controlling a staggering 9999 locomotives as well as in excess of 2000 points and electrical accessories, when connected to the relevant number of R8247 Point & Accessory Decoders. providing the power is available. There has never been anything like this before and it is so simple to use!

The 'eLink' Control Pack contains the amazing 'RailMaster' software, the 'eLink' interface unit and a 1 amp transformer.  Once 'RailMaster' is loaded into the computer and with the ‘eLink’ connected in between the layout and the computer, the full force of Hornby DCC is ready to take control.

All the locomotive and accessory programming can be completed on a conventional Programming Track using 'RailMaster’ working in conjunction with the PC, while all other operations can be effected while the locomotives are on the layout.

The 'eLink' unit may be placed on or near the layout although there are fixings so that the unit can be concealed if desired.
