What's New ?


Stop in and check out in-store specials on select in stock models to move them off my shelf and onto your layout.


** New Product Announcements **


LCC stands for “Layout Command Control,” and it’s a system for controlling all the functions on your layout that don’t have to do with how fast the locomotive is moving -- things like signals, or sounds, or passenger car lighting. The standard was developed by an NMRA working group. RR-Cirkits builds a variety of LCC components and soon(?) TCS will be offering a command station that uses LCC to tie together components from different manufacturers.
