Product Development Plan

We would be pleased to receive any feedback on our development plans.

Outline of the plan so far, ( order here may not be the order they come to the market).

ALL new products will be very user friendly to fit and use, with screw terminals ( NO SOLDERING) and simple setup instructions.

  • BIG full colour screen for the 611.
  • BIG Accessory decoder 12 way.
  • New twin track reverse loop module.
  • New DC twin track controller.
  • New DC hand held controller.
  • New SLOW action point motor.
  • New DDC Control system code name P

Some detail on the above, firstly the new screen for the 611, this is being designed to fit on to the controller as a replacement unit, if you have a green 611 you will be able to trade your small screen in towards the cost of the new screen.

  • extra two loco controls on screen.
  • full loco details on screen.
  • track layout plan on screen, with point control.
  • loco function status on screen.
  • loco number or loco name on screen.
  • loco photo in loco id screen.
  • loco chip programming on screen.
  • loco chip history page.
  • Point preset screen to give you simple editing.

We hope to be able to add more pages to this list as development goes on, please keep your thoughts coming in.

Point motors solenoid , slow action or servo plus colour lights and semaphore signals. The unit will have a CDU built in for solenoid motors .
