Starter Sets

  • MultiMaus Train Sets - Roco changes the contents of its starter sets each year, with a range of prototypes being available for both HO and HOe. However, aside from the changing train and track content, the actual DCC equipment remains the same:
  • 10810 MultiMaus
  • 10764 Amplifier (Combined command station/booster)
  • 10725 Transformer, multilingual manual and a DCC equipped locomotive.
  • LokMaus Train Sets - Although these are no longer produced by Roco, they are still readily available. The contents are similar to the MultiMaus train sets, but the throtttle is the less powerful LokMaus.
