I have a Marklin HO 3 rail layout that I built when I lived in France. It has a 6002 (230v) power supply to a 6021 didgital controller. I have just tried to run it here in the UK bit it has problems. The digital side of it doesn't work and when I run a non digital 3 rail train it will only go backwards and without and speed control. I know there was a UK power supply 6003 at 240v but I'm not sure whether the malfunction is just a 6002 v 6003 issue or whether the controller is malfunctioning. Can any one tell em if the problems I'm experiencing is just the 230v issue. Also does any one know if there is a later version of the 6003 transformer as it appears not to be available.

Whatever the reason I doubt if it is mains related - the UK now has a nominal 230v supply.

I would have thought that the 6021 would have had some sort of inbuilt regulation to care of any voltage fluctuations anyway. Maybe there is a master reset you can carry out to the 6021 ?

& welcome to the forum.
