The New Power Master AC, # 0001301 has an MSRP of $114.98. For use with AC locomotives, the small footprint power pack provides plenty of power, plus "Power Boost" when needed, along with Horn/whistle and bell buttons. Advanced sine wave circuitry insures onboard locomotive sounds will function no matter what the brand. Available in November.

Model Rectifier Corporation is excited to announce the latest in power pack technology to meet the needs of AC model locomotives. The Power Master AC provides feature rich control that's compatible with just about every AC powered model locomotive and their sounds.
With more than 60 years of industry leading design and perfecting power packs and sophisticated DCC controls and sound systems, MRC has developed another world beating power pack to enable AC model railroaders to get maximum enjoyment from their hobby. The Power Master AC features advanced sine-wave circuitry so onboard locomotive sounds will function no matter what the brand. You can activate the whistle/horn and bell from the control panel. The large, ergonomic throttle provides remarkably precise slow-speed control for exceptional realism, enhancing enjoyment and railroad capabilities. If added power is ever needed because of inclines or adding heavy freight loads, simply push the special Power Boost button, and keep right on rolling!
• Special sine-wave output circuitry provides plenty of controlled power
• Separate power supply keeps Power Master AC footprint small and light weight
• Whistle/horn & bell buttons included
• Special "Booster" button for added power when needed
• Precise, slow-speed throttle control for realistic performance
• Direction button
The Power Master AC is backed by MRC's unyielding customer service, support and commitment expected of a market leader.

For once I agree with you Dennis - most Marklin owners only buy if it has Marklin written on it. Unless some US modellers use AC for "O" or larger scales ?

Is it me or is the direction of the control arm illogical - I would have thought that it would have gone from L to R with the pointer ?

I completely agree with Dennis and Brian.

This gadget is in my opinion aimed directly to Lionel users and if any Maerklin user buys it will be a bonus to MRC.

The Power master will run 0 gauge M.T.H. Proto Sounds 1 and 2, Lionel Rail Sounds locomotives and their pre and post war engines as well as K-line.

The Power master was non-digital is not used for marklin delta/digital locomotives.

Power Master is dead. Long live Throttlepack.

QUOTE (MRC @ October 24, 2007)We at MRC may have created some industry confusion by the use of the name PowerMaster for our new MRC powerpack to operate AC powered trains. Powermaster is a registered trademark of Lionel LLC, Chesterfield, MI. We are sorry to have created this confusion and have changed the name to Throttlepack, a brand name long associated with MRC. The new MRC Throttlepack will be available for delivery early in 2008.
