There cannot be a name more familiar to the UK modeller than Hornby who produce the most extensive range of OO gauge model railway products in the world.

Hornby Digital

The Hornby Select and Elite are the most widely available DCC systems in the UK.

  Hornby Elite

   The Hornby Elite is their premier DCC system and offers:

    3 Amps track power plus a 1 Amp accessory output.

    Short and long loco addresses plus text identification.

    255 Accessory addresses.

    13 Functions F0 - F12.

    Read/write programming.

    RailCom compatible.
Hornby Select

Hornby Select

The Hornby Select is their entry level system and is included in their digital train sets.  The Select offers:

    1 Amp track output plus an accessory power output.

    60 loco addresses including 0 for controlling one analogue loco.

    40 Accessory addresses.

    9 Functions F0 - F8

    Limited write only programming.

We have to advise that for modellers using large numbers of functions, particularly with sound equipped locos, we cannot give the Hornby systems a firm recommendation because of the clumsy operating method.
