ZTC have apparantly now been taken on board by Neil Kinison. (www.modelrailwaysdecoded.co.uk)
New ZTC 'under construction' web site is: www.ztccontrols.co.uk
Hope this helps.

The new owners are at the London Festival of Railway Modelling this weekend, as an owner of a ZTC controller myself I'll be paying them a visit.

I'll try and remember to post anything useful here when I get back.

Reallistically, you might find it a better option to purchase a new system such as NCE, Lenz or Digitrax - the price of these is comparable with ZTC and with all of them, you'll get far better, far more featured and far more reliable products.

You could consider Hornby's Elite which has the same features as ZTC but at a much more reallistic price.

I spoke to the new owner at the show at the weekend, he was very personable (quite unlike the original owner!).

The stand was very much like the old ZTC stand, lots of shelves of stuff at the back and a short section of track with a controller at the front for demoes.

I asked about repairs/warranties for old units and he was a bit cagey, asked what was wrong, and I said nothing yet, so no ideas about costs for these.

Availability shouldn't be an issue though, he said he'd been concentrating on the manufacturing side and he had pretty much the entire old ZTC range in stock except for a couple of small items which would be available in a matter of a few weeks.

I have the contact details etc. but not on me, I'll post them up later if I remember, but he should be able to sort something out re repairs.

As for the website, that should be up soon, but effort has been put into the manufacturing side first, so that any demand created by a shiny new website could be met, a sensible way round which a lot of other firms could learn from!

Overall impression was good, the old ZTC issues are still there, but it looks like the business aspects have been sorted out properly now. It will be interesting to see which direction they go now.

I have an old 511 model. It has been with Neil now for over 5 weeks. (originally for a check and an upgrade) I was told that a new mother board was needed. I am still waiting for the job to be completed. I am being told that he is dependant on others to help out. I am becoming rather concerned at the the service and have told him so! I will hopefully post a positive reply very soon-I hope!
