RailPro products by Ring Engineering are professional, and very easy to use model railroad control products, which can be enjoyed by beginners and experts alike.The HC-1 is a wireless controller with a color touch screen that can be used to operate your model railroad layout. The HC-1 can control the speed, direction, lights, and sounds of locomotives and other accessories by simply touching the screen! RailPro products are equipped with Direct Radio and are designed to work together. Direct Radio allows the RailPro components to communicate with each other without any wires! Direct Radio is very fast, giving your RailPro products quick response to your controls.
A complete system from Rail Pro includes a power supply, the HC-1wireless handheld controller with a color touch screen and the LM-1 Radio/SOUND, 9 Pin NMRA plug module that you can install into a model train locomotive. A locomotive with the LM-1 module installed can also be powered by placing the locomotive on a DCC layout. The HC-1 is a rechargeable battery powered wireless handheld controller with Direct Radio controller that communicates with the LM-1 engine. The HC-1 Handheld Controller has up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge (8-9 hours with a bright screen setting).
RailPro is so easy to use that YD's four year old grandson operates his locomotive using the HC-1 on our large Digitrax radio controlled duplex layout. He also has taken his engine and HC-1 and run on both Digitrax and NCE large DCC model train club layouts.
YD demo's the capability of controlling two locomotives, at the same time, on different modular layouts in the same room, at model train shows, using a single HC-1. You can control several locomotives form a single HC-1. Further, multiple HC-1's can be used at the same time to allow additional family and friends to enjoy your model layout!
One of the many impressive features of the RailPro system is how simple it is to consist locomotives. You will only need to set one adjustment to get locomotives with even different motors and gear ratios to work very well together. The one adjustment that needs to be set has an auto set feature. You can actually setup different locomotives to run well together in under a minute After the one time setup on the locomotives, you just need to press the link button and touch the pictures of the locomotives that you want to run together! Without you even knowing it, the locomotive modules will communicate to each other using Direct Radio to be sure that each engine is pulling its share of the load and runs smoothly together. There is also no 4 digit decoder address restriction, so multiple club members can own the same new Turbine locomotive and run them at the same time on the same layout.

Hope to see you down the tracks. The YD team gives RailPro a Two THUMBS Up !!!
