The 2014 Hornby Catalogue is packed with new and exciting releases. Whether your interest in model railways is new found or established, the annual Hornby catalogue is always enthusiastically received and this year will not disappoint.

Returning to the LNER, the K1 will make a welcome appearance, as to will the much demanded D16/3, known as the ‘Super Claud'.
Joining the RailRoad range is the Crosti Boiler 9F, a model few thought would ever be produced.

Gaugemaster 2014 Catalogue
Product Code: GM353
This year is a bit of a landmark for us as our catalogue now includes items from many of our distribution partners. We have focussed on items that would not look out of place on a British layout but it is important to remember that these ranges are usually vast and if completeness is required, then we recommend taking a look on the website or the manufacturers catalogue.
Enjoy Modelling with the Whole Family! Create an amazing model railway layout as a family together with your children. Isn’t it an exciting idea? The children will be certainly very keen to do it.

Hornby Track Master
Product Code: R8145
Planning a model railway layout can be an incredibly daunting task, conjuring up nightmares of graph paper, protractors, compasses and a degree of wasted time when the geometry does not work! But not any more!
This simple to use computer aided design tool incorporates the complete range of Hornby set track pieces which are reproduced on the PC screen in photo quality images.
The programme already has pre-installed all the Hornby TrakMat pack layouts from the simple oval to the complete TrakMat layout as well as a selection of full size track circuits for those who require an instant track design. The Hornby Track-Master has been designed to work with Windows 98, 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7.
The straightforward 5 "pull down" menus cover Hornby straights, curves, points, special track pieces and platforms. By clicking on the desired track pieces and dragging them into position a layout can quickly form.
The "snap" fixing as the tracks come together ensures that each piece is locked into position. If the geometry does not work then simply click the track piece and move it to one side and continue with the layout building.
Once the plan is complete a "shopping list" of the track required is produced as well as a drawing of the complete layout.

Just connect the Elite via the USB port to a PC or laptop and then...The Power of RailMaster is at your finger tips with RailMaster connected, the power of the Elite can be harnessed like never before. RailMaster is a totally new way to control a model railway.
Just connect the Elite via the USB port to a PC or laptop and the power of RailMaster is at your fingertips!
Control up to 10 locomotives all at the same time* Any number of locomotives can be set up for use with RailMaster. Each locomotive can be given tailored default settings to suit individual locomotives. For example shunting speed, cruising speed, direction lights and so on. RailMaster also supports Hornby DCC sound locomotives and these functions can be selected quickly and easily from a single control screen or written into programs.
RailMaster has also pre-loaded the names and profiles of many Hornby locos and including those that are no longer listed going back to the 1970s. Other locomotives not already included can be added and their own profile incorporated into the program. All this means running and operating locomotives has never been easier, even consisting (double heading) can be done with the minimum of button pressing.
RailMaster provides the facility to simply program locomotives so that they will follow a series of commands automatically. For example, a train can be set to start from a siding, pick up some coaches, go to the first station, wait, move to the next station and so on. If writing a program seems a little daunting RailMaster incorporates a record function which provides the facility to record the actions of each locomotive as well as the switching of the points in "real time" ready to be "played" back when required.
RailMaster also has the facility for the implementation of a matrix designed layout emulating that of the layout it is connected to. Simple to use the layout can quickly and easily be "constructed" and forms a valuable facility in controlling a busy layout.
Control all of the motorised points on your layout. RailMaster can also be used to set up any number of points using the Hornby Point and Accessory decoders.
Once they have been configured for use with the Hornby Elite DCC controller the Hornby Accessory Decoders can positioned on the matrix plan of the layout, which can then be called up onto the PC or laptop screen.
Then, by simply clicking with the mouse or if a touch screen is being used, a finger, the red or green buttons on the screen will switch the selected point. Just like a modern signal box.
There is also a feature to automatically set a group of points in one action, for example to set default points for main-line working. Therefore using the built-in programming system, points can be changed, locomotives can be set running and signals can change this providing a fully automated layout.
Finally, if desired RailMaster will automatically set all points to the correct starting positions when first switched on. Control all signals, whether light or motorised semaphore. For that added realism RailMaster will also allow the control of motorised semaphore signals or coloured light signal from the PC screen.
Using the built-in programming language, RailMaster can control signals, locomotives and switch points depending on signal settings. Now model railways can be controlled the way they should be - just like the real thing.
