Welcome to my RailMaster/eLink Help Pages

Within these pages you will find the best chance to get Hornby’s RailMaster software running on your PC or laptop via Windows 10 or earlier versions of Windows although settings locations will differ. Help with anti-virus/malware/spyware/trojan related software is also given as some users have difficulty operating RailMaster with these programs and their firewalls.

Users of other, non-Windows, operating systems should seek specific help from other sources.
