Hornby Other R7229 Analogue Train and Accessory Controller

The R7229 Analogue Controller incorporates a number of features.

As well as the standard control, the unit has an uncontrolled output at the back, designed to operate points and accessories. This output also incorporates a CDU (capacitor discharge unit). Supporting solenoid points motors, the CDU will avoid any potential operating issues when too much power is demanded through the controller.

The other feature that stands out is the ‘Hi-Lo’ switch located just to the side of the uncontrolled output. This switch is a useful addition that will allow you to limit the speed of the controller instantly. Great for younger children, this will avoid any speed related problems where trains are sent at far too high a speed around the layout. Even for more experienced modellers, the ‘Hi-Lo’ switch is a useful feature which enables slower running at the flick of a switch.

The controller has been given a traditional Hornby finish, in keeping with larger controllers like the HM2000. Produced with a black and red colour scheme, the finish is designed to be more tactile and with the addition of extra weight, the controller is both robust and stable. The central dial has even been smoothed out to offer an improved feel when being used.

The dial will still stop the directional slider from moving if it is turned up, ensuring no locomotive has its direction abruptly changed while running. There are also the fixing holes on the underneath allowing the controller to be located to a baseboard if desired.

The controller is supplied without a transformer and will require a P9000 Multi Purpose Transformer. Please note that no other transformer should be used.

We now only ship to the United Kingdom

Covid-19 is still causing long delays in shipping to destinations outside the UK and Brexit has added new complexities and additional local charges payable by the customer within the EU. Because of these issues we will reluctantly no longer be able to process orders for delivery outside of the UK. Although we will keep this under review it is not anticipated to change for the rest of 2021. For customers overseas with existing orders, we will contact you once your order is ready to be shipped to organise delivery to the address on your order.
