Hornby R1160 The Cornishman OO Gauge DCC Electric Train Set

The elegance of Pullman travel in DCC

The sheer elegance of Pullman travel is beautifully captured in this excellent DCC set. The Castle Class locomotive is an ideal model to haul the majestic Pullman Cars around the circuit of track included with this set.

The locomotive control is provided by the Hornby DCC Select unit which can be assigned with up to 60 locomotives and 38 points or operating accessories making this set ideal for further additions of locomotives and rolling stock.


Train

This set includes a top of the range classic British model steam locomotive with elegantly decorated carriages. The train consists of a locomotive, two 1st Parlour cars and a brake car.

Extend your set in easy steps by adding Track Packs and TrakMat Accessory Packs all the way to the full layout pictured on your MidiMat.

Why choose a Hornby Digital train set?

The Hornby DCC system ensures that the Hornby control units are simple to understand and very straightforward to operate. The Hornby system differs from the conventional type of 12V controllers in as much that it is the individual locomotives that are controlled internally rather than the controlling of a locomotive's speed and direction by varying the current to the track. What this means for the operator is a remarkable level of nuanced control with the Select controller (and even more with the Elite) with surprising ease. The DCC system facilitates busy model railway layouts of many trains with control over each one.

Fill out your MidiMat with additional Track and Building Packs

The track circuit in this set can be extended to fully complete the included MidiMat which, with additional Hornby Track and Building packs, can be simply and quickly built up into a truly fascinating and effective model railway layout.

Additional track packs include R8221 Track Pack A, R8222 Track Pack B, R8223 Track Pack C, R8224 Track Pack D, R8225 Track Pack E and R8226 Track Pack F.
Additional building packs include R8227 Building Pack A, R8228 Building Pack B, R8229 Building Pack C, R8230 Building Pack D and R8231 Building Pack E.

Good value set and good length of track; just one extension pack needed to make 2 full ovals.

Have run the train for 3 weeks and it's fine apart from a few point problems with the tender (I think thats the track layout not been fully level and flat), DCC is easy to set up and the detail on the locomotive and coaches is great.

This is a great set and the price is by far the cheapest out there.

But take note, the technical information for what is included is wrong as there is only one loco and three coaches in the set as well as the track ect ect.. and not a diesel engine and a steam one and there are not four wagons ...... this is the mixed freight DCC set, it is correct further down the page when the set is explained.

Fantastic product and entry into the world of digital trains.
