MRC New Products, New Prices
As is customary in January, MRC (Model Rectifier Corporation) announces some new products and marginally raises prices on most of their offerings.
Some DCC system MSRPs were raised about $10.00, cabs about $5.00 and some decoders a few dollars.
The systems and cabs pricing has been updated online. We are in the process of revising our decoder pricing and should have the latest posted in a few days.
Here is an unedited copy of some of MRC New Railroad Items for 2011. They usually announce more as the year progresses.
New MRC Railroad Items for 2011

The New Prodigy Pro Elite takes DCC control and performance to a new level of
sophistication. Offering a massive 10 amps of controlled power, the Pro Elite will
be a perfect fit for large club layouts or large outdoor G gauge displays or for
the modeler who demands the best. What’s more it features more outstanding
industry performance features
- Backlit LCD
- 10 amps of controlled power
- Metal cabinet console with LED power meter
- MRC’s Proprietary “Hypersonic Control Link®” (HCL) for faster response
from the throttle to the locomotive.
- External back lit LCD fast clock connects to the main console

“FAST CLOCK MODULE” for all Railroaders -
Finally a fast clock that can be used for all railroaders no matter what type of
gauge or power they use. This clock can also work in coordination with Prodigy
DCC systems and their internal fast clock.
The MRC Fast Clock can be adjusted to speed up time from 2 times up to 8 times
as fast as normal time. Great for clubs or anyone who likes to run on a schedule
to add more realism to their operations.
“THROTTLEPACK 9900” - 0001310
MRC Introduces a very high output power pack to handle demanding loads of
G gauge or large club layouts in HO or N Scale. This is a perfect replacement for
the Controlmaster 20 and the 6200. It has as much power as a Controlmaster 20
and 50% more power than the 6200. Yet it is priced at the price of our 6200.
An optional hand held may be introduced later in the year.
HO scale non-sound small size with 8-pin NMRA plug built directly on the board.
Ideal for smaller HO locomotives, but powerful enough for larger ones.

whistles and bells. Designed to fit most Mantua and other small steam
locomotives. Includes 9-pin JST connector.
