For all DC scales and all railroading budgets - MRC's DC train controls offer a wide choice of features and price points to satisfy your layout and budget. Whether you're running HO, N, TT, G, Z or another DC scale, there's an MRC train control and sound system for your railroad.
Patented Accutec Technology - An engineering breakthrough, our Accutec Technology can boost the performance of every loco on your layout and enhance a number of control characteristics, including slow speed control, and momentum. MRC has sold millions of train controls so we're sure you'll find the model with the right features for your layout at a price point in step with your needs.
Massive power, maximum control - If big scale power is your passion take a power trip with our super high power units for HO and N as well as G and other large scales. Chances are we have just the high power DC train control you need... one with plenty of juice for power draining accessories, extra locos and big layouts. Large scales and large layouts need high power sources. Your need for big power generally starts as you add switches, lights and locos. What you'll need is big, controlled, safe power. While some other makers claim huge outputs, it may only last for an instant. Continue to draw top power and their units may overload and shut down. Not with MRC train controls. MRC's power claims are for lasting power. The kind of power that can take you from slow crawls to steep grades to highballing with controlled realism without short changing your accessories.
For your layout's first taste of realism - If you're just getting serious about model railroading, the Railpower Series is your opportunity to experience increased realism complemented by all the power you'd want in your first step-up unit. With Railpower 1300 and 1370 you'll get your first taste of railroading realism for N, HO, TT and Z scales. Both are UL listed and the price is right.
ATTENTION: MRC has proudly manufactured Power Packs since 1947 and has sold more than 1 Million products to satisfied customers in North America without any issue during this time. Evidently, Rapido Trains, a relatively new train manufacturer has allegedly not made their locomotives suitable for use with MRC's 1300 & 1370 Power Packs, which have used the same tried and true technology for the last 25 years with UL Certification.
