Very nice, even if the sleepers do have those funny moulding pips down the middle

I am dying to know what you think of that new Maerklin control unit, particularly the master unit with the LCD. It bears such an uncanny resemblance to the ESU ECoS I have set my heart on!

QUOTE Just curious but there does seem to be very tight curves in places. Can all Marklin loco's handle these?
Yes they can. I'm not sure of the radius, but as a guess 25 - 27" . I always enjoyed visiting the Marklin agent in SA, they had a very nice demo layout with these typical curves. Sweet running stock, highly detialed and

As the Maerklin Central station came out about a year ago and the Hornby one is yet to appear I think the opposite is true. The Elite looks like the Maerklin Central station.

I'm very interested in this too.

Do I see a stylus? Is the Central Station screen touch sensitive?

The Hornby Elite design looks rougher, the dials and buttons not as fine if that makes any difference.
To be honest all they would have in common is that they both have two dials


Everything else the technology, current, DCC format would be different. Oh and the price too.
