Can you modify this so it can operate electric points and if not bring back the old dc controller

Is this controller suitable for N gauge. I read somewhere that not all OO gauge controllers are good for n gauge. Thanks in advance

What is the wattage and amp output of this controller? I would assume .5amps, is this correct?

Can you use link wires with the standard train controller

Posted by Daryl Macklin on 3rd May 2017

1. Can this controller be purchased in the USA, together with a suitable transformer for 110 volts? 2. Will it operate any locomotive that is merely 'DCC Ready' but does not have a DCC chip fitted?

A Re-set button

Like the other 2 reviews say - it's cheep but does the job but I have also found that for what ever reason it cuts out - you have to un-plug then leave it for about 10 or 15 seconds then plug it back in again - it would be helpful if it had a re-set button on it - so it makes it easier to deal with if when it cuts out!!!

Cheap, but does the job

Didn't buy it, but got it with a train pack, it can be a bit unpredictable at times, or maybe I broke mine as it now outputs full power when it's supposed to be off in random bursts.... Works fine, but not the best thing, would be better getting a more expensive one for properer layouts.

Many thanks for your review. The controller should not put out any power if the dial has been turned all the way down. Please contact our Customer Services team if you think yours may be faulty: https://www.hornby.com/uk-en/contact

Why use anything else

I have used these controllers for over a year now and I love it! The trains have never run smoother and my DMU's lights stay on. Also the wire has NEVER BROKEN! The only slight issue is it doesn't have a 16 volt output for point motors and signals, but I can't complain. Best controller ever: Thanks Hornby! J.S.
