Digital Overview

COVID: Following a protracted COVID shutdown, Massoth are working to clear back orders. We currently have very limited stock - please contact us and we'll do our best to fulfil your order as soon as possible. We apologise for the inconvenience.

From simple control of an average layout to fully-automated operations, with or without sound and lighting, we can help bring your layout under control!

We specialise in Massoth, the defacto standard for electrically-operated digital control of garden railways. Original creators of the LGB systems, they have since revolutionised the market with their extensive range of robust products.

Although compatible with many other NMRA digital control systems, the Massoth system is particularly geared towards the heavy current loading and durability requirements of the outdoor scales. The potential of the system is limited only by your imagination but scaleable to fit your budget.

For those just starting out, it can be daunting but we’re here to help with training, advice, recommendations and consultancy services.

Don’t want to know how it works and just want to drive trains? ............. we are happy to quote for a system to include our installation on your railway

In it’s simplest form, the system comprises of:

  • A power supply transformer

  • A control unit (essentially a computer)

  • A handset controller (wired, wireless or multiple)

  • A single connection to your track

  • ‘Decoder’ microchips in your locomotives

From there, many choose to expand their control by adding components to enable:

  • Point / turnout control

  • Signal control

  • Locomotive and or layout lighting

  • Locomotive and or layout sound

  • Smoke effects

  • Animations of scenery using servo motors

  • Feedback displays for train location

  • Autonomous computer control
