Since 1960, Helmsman have been designing, supplying and servicing two-way radios and electronic systems. They have a first class reputation and are well known by a number of British and European companies. In the past their stage lighting won awards for its quality including the first ever "Best Stage Lighting" award from NODA.

Due to a request from a local company and the ensuing popularity of the products they are now also producing a large range of model railway electronics.

Helmsman's new “Carbon Fibre” range of controllers have been completely redesigned
with a sturdier, smarter case and new electronics circuit board which has made it
possible to produce the remote control unit as an “add-on” extra for most models.
Models range from a 2A unit up to the 5A unit which is ideal for today’s big “0”
gauge diesels and LGB units which we recommend for garden railways and other
large layouts to overcome voltage drop.
Our LGB version has also proved very popular with the 20V AC Hornby collector.
All models in the “Carbon Fibre” range include a lifetime guarantee.

Developed primarily for American collectors, but useful for any multiple-headed
model railways, we have available our “Super-Power” 30Amp controllers.
Mains powered 4.5 amp output @ 20 volts (for LGB etc)
Remote handset for all 5A & LGB Controllers
