Description

TS Controllers and Alan Thomson Sim are pleased to present the eagerly awaited Combined Power Brake Controller for Train Simulator.

The PBC comes in two varieties, with or without Horn/PBL lever. Choose 1 included handle, and add on other optional swappable handles.

This is the first time a realistic controller actually modelled on real life trains has been easily available to purchase. The aim was an authentic experience at an affordable price. Choose from 3 different handle add-ons to customise your driving experience: Modern EMU/Networker style, T-bar style, ball style. Your first choice of handle is included as standard.

The Power Brake controller is suitable for all trains in Train Simulator. The controller proves upto 4 notches of brake, and upto 7 notches of power. If a train without a PBC is used, the controller will act as a throttle-only controller.

The PBC, which has been in development for over a year, provides the most realistic controller available with a suite of software to get you up and running straight away.

Includes fully featured software for a seamless Train Simulator experience!

The included software has been created to make it as easy as possible to get up and running straight away, with no complex setup required. Over the past year, the software has been carefully tuned with over 100 add-on for Train Simulator to provide a great experience with whatever you wish to drive. When loading a train into Train simulator, the PBC software automatically detects the right parameters to use without hassle.
There is also limited (but unsupported) functionality for TSW2, with full support hoped for the future.

Hand made and hand crafted

The unit is modelled on real life controls with special attention given to the feel of the handles as well has the notches and resistance that the controller provides on throttle and brake steps.

This isn’t a massed produced item, made in the far east. Each unit is individually hand crafted and hand finished to ensure quality, reliability and the most realistic experience possible.
