Bachmann have yet to set a price for this model.  Our system requires a price to allow the item to be visible and available for pre-orders.  Rather than invent a price we have set these products at 1p.  Once Bachmann have provided a price we will update this and our price should be around 15% off the RRP.   Nearer the release date we will contact everyone who has pre-ordered this item with the confirmed price.  You can cancel your pre-order without penalty at any time.

Welcome to Model Railway Control Redefined – thanks to Bachmann Kinesis. The Kinesis Digital Command Control (DCC) system is a new, versatile and comprehensive DCC package that gives every user full control of their model railway and how they operate it. The Hub is the starting point of the Kinesis system, purchase a Hub you can be running your model railway straight away using Bachmann’s Kinesis RailController computer software (fully-licensed copy included). Expand the system with the RailController App which connects Android and Apple devices to RailController on your PC, or for those wanting a physical controller look no further than the Kinesis Edge Wireless Handset – up to five Edge Handsets can be used with the Hub. (Kinesis Wireless DCC System Starter Park also available – includes 1 x Hub, 1 x Edge and RailController software).

For multi-person operation why not use a mixture of controllers, all seamlessly synchronised across different handsets and devices so that every screen shows real-time information for locomotive speeds, directions and functions, and accessory settings.

The Hub Base Station, with its 2 Amp power supply, features outputs to the main track and a separate programming track as well as an informative built-in backlit LCD that shows you everything the controller is doing. A USB port allows the Hub to be connected to a PC for use with RailController software (a fully-licensed version of which is included), whilst 2.4GHz wireless is used to connect up to five Edge Wireless Handsets to the controller.

Kinesis RailController Hand-Held App

The new Kinesis RailController Hand-Held App can be used on Android or Apple devices and is connected to a computer running the Kinesis RailController software. Once connected to a computer, locomotives and accessories are downloaded from RailController to the App, including the full MIMIC track plan, by name rather than DCC address for easy recognition.

On a phone, when the device screen is in portrait mode a locomotive controller is displayed, providing control of speed, direction and functions from a single touch of the screen. Up to three controllers can be swiped sideways for quick access to loco control. Accessories can be accessed whilst in portrait mode, but invert the screen to landscape and your track plan will be displayed, showing points and signals just as they appear on your RailController track plan. They can be controlled on-plan with a single tap. With the RailController Hand-Held App it is possible to read and write CVs whilst also creating multiple-headers to operate two or more locomotives together.
