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.

Special features include...

With 'eLink' and a 'RailMaster' installed onto a PC or laptop the following benefits over DCC are only a click away:

  • Visual control of all locomotives. No need to remember loco numbers as they are all there on the PC screen.
  • USB link for connection to PC / Laptop. Can also be used to download software upgrades.
  • Change points with a simple click of the mouse.
  • Read and write locomotive and accessory decoder CVs. (Configuration Variables).
  • Active matrix style track layout for easy operation of points and accessories.
  • Simple double heading locomotive control.
  • Voice controlled enabled. (Available 3rd quarter)
  • Scale clock and timer.
  • Compatible for use with ‘O’, ‘HO, ‘OO’ and ‘N’ gauge.
  • Smart phone compliant. Allows up to 8 Smart Phones or Tablets to be connected to your computer for remote control of the layout...and much, much more!

Fantastic control system

This is a great system. So easy to learn. I can get the computer to run trains for me and also control other ones. So much more going on and my grand children can join in too, with the app!

Brilliant

I obtained Railmaster and E-Link included with the "Majestic" train set as it was the only affordable way for me to get into DCC.
Having used it for quite some time now I am very impressed with the versatility of the Railmaster software in general plus the voice control capabilities of the upgraded version and the optional ability to use one's existing mobile phone as a walkabout controller is an added bonus. Every other system requires you to buy extra hand-held controllers so being able to use a phone or tablet is a huge convenience and cost saving too.
I have it running on an old laptop (originally a Vista machine but now Win 10) and it has never crashed or given me a problem through all the operating system upgrades.
It also has the added safety that unauthorised children can't access any controller and crank everything up to warp speed.
