I thought this was pretty nifty. Amazon are selling the Hornby Western Master which is a E-Link starter set that is controlled by a Windows pc. The idea is you can have lots of locomotives on the same track all controlled independently unlike the old days where you'd need multiple loops.

..Seems to be about £30 quid cheaper than elsewhere. Not a bad little starter set

This is a very good price.

eLink lets you control DIGITAL locos (but not the 'old fashioned' normal, analogue ones) through your computer, probably a laptop.

It can be a bit tricky to set up (confusing instructions from Hornby). But once you have cracked it, there is plenty of fun setting up layouts, programming locos to perform certain functions etc.

Here is a video about this set. It runs for nearly an hour!!!

Agreed. It's probably worth adding your "old" hornby trains (and other types) can be relatively easily upgraded to DCC using a fairly cheap chip.

Side note: That guy has a billion trains! I wonder why he didn't just build a real layout given he must have spent thousands

Quite like the idea of this, so you can design your track in the software, build it for real, then control everything from the software and it shows you where everything should be?

i'm not sure it knows where the train is sadly. I think that needs some additional sensors of somesort - I dont know how Hornby deal with that
