With H0 Scale (scale of 1:87), Trix fulfill not only the dream of creating your own model railroad with fascinating realms of operation but also evokes a genuine quality of life. The sturdy but also very richly detailed models enable realistic train operations and offer wonderful experiences.
For decades, Minitrix has stood for a broad assortment in N Gauge with its scale of 1:160 – a gauge, in which just about everything is possible and which promises unlimited possibilities in the world of model railroading. The realistic precision detailing is just as convincing as the large offering of locomotives and cars from all eras.
This set is the ideal way to start out in Digital Control (DCC and mfx). It includes a Trix Mobile Station control system which is easy to use in both DCC and mfx. If you are using locomotives with mfx protocol the controller will automatically recognize and load the profile of the locomotive (Name, Class, Icon, Address, Function buttons and more). All you need to do is place the locomotive on the track. In DCC mode you have full control of the CVs and can build and store your own locomotive profile. Up to 40 profiles can be stored for direct access.
