Tech 6 DC Power Packs
Tech 6 for HO, N, TT & Z scales...

There is no other DC Train Control Like It.

Now Nothing Stands Between DC Railroaders and Onboard Sound!

Ready to bring your layout to life with sound equipped locos, but not yet ready for DCC? Consider MRC's Tech 6 DC train control. This powerful unit controls your railroad, and by simply using the pack's numbered keypad, you can unleash all the onboard sounds and lighting functions "trapped" in sound-equipped locos.* If you don't have a sound-equipped loco, buy an MRC sound decoder, install it in your loco and Tech 6 will deliver all its sounds.

DC modelers with a string of DC locomotives can now extract more realism from their railroad without going to DCC. Tech 6 Sound Controller 2.0 and Tech 6 Sound Controller 6.0 are advanced throttles that will run your DC loco... and then with the click of a mode switch will unleash as many as 28 NMRA sounds and lighting functions that a sound equipped loco has to offer. Enjoy added sounds, lights and realism without going to a DCC system without putting your DC locos into mothballs.

*Blue Line locos require a power decoder to unleash all sounds. Blue Line is a trademark of Broadway Limited Imports.

Nothing short of a miracle

Many DC railroaders have a nice collection of DC locomotives. And while they'd love to have onboard sound, in a lot of cases they're not ready to switch to DCC, to make it happen. With MRC's Tech 6 Sound Controller 6.0, they don't have to switch. Simply buy a sound decoder equipped loco or two, and the Tech 6 will access all the onboard sounds... and it'll still run the DC locos as well. Truly amazing!

Control up to six locos

This powerful six amp unit, with its versatile walk-around, will control one standard DC loco or six fully functional, sound decoder equipped locos at one time. Best of all, the Tech 6 allows the hobbyist to enjoy all the sound advantages that until now were only available to the DCC crowd.

Experience the full range of onboard sounds

The DC railroader is no longer limited to simple chuffs, or awkwardly flipping direction switches just to activate a bell or whistle. With this incredibly advanced DC train control, the railroader will enjoy as many of the 28 NMRA sounds (and lighting functions) that the sound decoder equipped loco has to offer. Just call them up with the touch of a button on the easy to use walk-around controller. The digital display tells you everything you need to know and MRC's engineers made it so simple to operate... the basic instructions are actually printed on the back of the walkaround.
