Hi,

I was just wondering - can any Hornby Select/elite/walk-about act as a slave?

I've ended up with two Select units (not walk-abouts) and I wondered what would happen if they were connected together.
After all they both have the XpressNet protocol, so will one act as master and the other act as a slave.

Also is there anything special about Hornby's RJ12 connection lead or would any old ethernet cable do?

hi
have bought the RJ12 lead from hornby and used two hornby selects and they work great, the only difference i can see is the hornby select comes with a power lead, and you do not need one for the walkabout, hope that helps
