Product Summary

RailDriver Desktop Train Cab Controller




Drive your train simulation game or your model train with realistic throttle, brake, reverser, and switch controls, plus 34 programmable buttons. The RailDriver Desktop Train Cab Controller supports MicroSoft Train Simulator and Auran Trainz UTC and makes you feel like you're driving a train, not a computer.

RailDriver Cab Maker lets you edit the functions of all levers, switches, and keys on the controller to create a custom operating panel for your favorite cab.

RailDriver Train Cab Controllers put levers, switches, and buttons in your hands to make you feel like you're driving a train, not a computer. Programmable keys put commands on the RailDriver, so you can put the keyboard away.

LED, Horn & Cab Buttons

Includes a three-digit LED speedometer, horn and whistle lever, and eight programmable cab buttons.


Throttle and Reverser

The desktop train cab controller comes complete with a throttle and dynamic brake, and a reverser.


Brake Systems

Independent and automatic brakes and three-position rotary switches provide a realistic experience.


Programmable Keys

Zoom rocker switch, four-way pan and tilt pad, and twenty-eight programmable game function keys.

 

The RailDriver Desktop Train Cab Controller includes prototypical levers and controls for the ultimate interface to computer-based railroading. In addition, internal bass speakers supplement your existing sound system to add realistic vibration.

RailDriver's Software Development Kit gives programmers the ability to support other games. See RailDriver's Technical Download Page for more information.

COOL NEW ACCESSORY:
DECORATIVE HITCH COVER

Honestly, who wouldn't want to look like they're driving a train?

The inspiration for this little beauty came when one of PI Engineering's employees backed the RailDriver simulator trailer into the flat bed trailer in the parking lot and then claimed he was only trying to 'couple' them. Then, after they covered up the dent with a RailDriver bumper sticker, they thought: "Why not make a coupler hitch for the company van?" Since nobody stopped these enterprising employees, they went ahead with the project.

This cast high-impact plastic hitch cover is a great addition to any rail enthusiast's vehicle. The coupler is a rusty dark brown and with the included adapter fits either an 1¼" or 2" receiver.

Product Requirements:

  • 1¼" or 2" receiver

Coupler Dimensions and Weight:

  • 7.5" x 4.0" x 2.0" (19 cm x 10 cm x 5 cm)
  • 2.3 lbs (1.0 kg)
  • Part Number: RD-A-199

WARNING: Please do not attempt to couple your vehicle to any actual rolling stock. P.I. Engineering, Inc. will not be held responsible for the results of any such attempt. This is a decorative hitch only, and is not made for any load-bearing capacity.

Price: $49.99
