Gaugemaster Prodigy Express Starter Package

For a newcomer to DCC or for the operation of a smaller layout, this system is a great choice. Comprising of a Base Station, Walkaround, and Power Supply, this system is packed with features but is above all, incredibly easy to use and allows you to run your railway without fuss.

With 1.6 amps, there is enough power to keep things interesting but its best feature is its sheer ease of use. Some other budget systems have the control on the console, but with this system the lightweight and comfortable Walkaround allows you extra mobility.

You can add an additional handset to your system to unlock extra functions and point control.

If you wish to extend your EXPRESS system, this is easily achievable by adding a Prodigy ADVANCE Walkaround (DCC14), as is adding Wireless capability by using either the (DCC51) Wireless conversion set or the Prodigy Wifi Module (DCC05).

Not as powerful as its older brother the Prodigy ADVANCE (DCC02) and without the ability to operate accessories in its current format, this system might not suit the more experienced modeller, but for the newcomer or someone keen to try DCC at a competitive price, this should be a system worth consideration.

Stuck where to put your DCC Controller? you can now attach it to your layout using the (DCC66) Prodigy Controller Caddy. This unit has been designed to screw directly to your baseboard and will fit most DCC Controllers and even mobile phones.
