An alternative to electric point motors for remote point control, point levers can be attached directly to Hornby and Peco points, or used with wire and tube.

Wire-in-tube point control works just like the brakes on a bicycle, the tube acting as a guide for the wire, allowing it to be routed across the layout and hidden by scenery and ballast. May be simply used mechanically but can also be linked to radio control units for distant signals.

A basic starter pack containing the basic parts of the MerControl wire-in-tube point control system. Designed to provide the parts needed for testing and trial installations.

Pack contains
1 universal point lever
2 angle cranks
3 feet (approx) of steel wire and flexible PTFE tubing.
