Hornby Train Controller instructions (R8250)

Hornby Standard Analogue Train Controller

Replacement instructions for the analogue Hornby train controller (R8250).  Features information about the ‘short circuit’ protection which is commonly mistaken for a fault.

If a metal object such as a pin or a derailed locomotive lies across the two running rails a ‘short circuit’ may occur.  This will activate the safety cut-out in the Train Controller or Transformer and stop the current supply to the track.  If this happens, switch off the mains power socket and trace and remedy the fault.  Allow approximately 60 seconds for the cut-out device to reset itself before switching the power socket on again.

Also, when a train is stopped by turning the speed control knob to its lowest setting, a small amount of electricity may still reach the locomotive motor.  This may result in a slight ‘hum’ emitting from the locomotive.

The speed control knob must be set to the zero speed position before using the switch to change direction.  Forcing this switch will damage the controller and invalidate your product warranty.

The Hornby Select is a Digital Command Control (DCC) model railway controller.  DCC is a digital system allowing control of several locomotives on the same electrical section of track.  Each locomotive is fitted with a special DCC decoder which picks up control commands from the DCC controller.

Each locomotive decoder has its own ID or “address” which is accessed by the controller, thus allowing the controller to tell a particular loco what speed and direction to move at.

Using the manual you can learn how to program your own locomotives, reset the Select in case of faults and get the most from your Hornby digital modern railway.
