    Add’s loads of fantastic new features and options to the board. Well worth the small monthly charge.

  2. Ben Broomfield (verified owner)

    Totally transformed my board! This adds one level more to the customisation of the board from the default free package my large board shipped with. Totally recommended, well worth the extra £4.99 p/m

    Hopefully we’ll see train formation diagrams added in a future update!

  3. Reginald Chan (verified owner)

    as always a smashing sub im currently a Premium Yearly and service is awsome love the features and addons that come along with it


    also along with customer support via twitter

  4. Roy Tait (verified owner)

    The one month free premium subscription gave me a taster for the awesome features available and yes, it succeeded in getting me hooked and signing up for a yearly subscription.

  5. Robert Philpot (verified owner)

    It does need to be emphasised that one subscription covers ALL your boards. I hope to have one in my kitchen soon and I won’t have to pay extra to set it up – so I can set them up individually and have audio on them all with different services if required at the same time. Please do be aware that Bluetooth audio whilst available is not reliable. Plugging in a USB speaker is by far the best idea. The smallest board comes with a built in speaker of course. Perhaps the others should too.

UK Departure Boards are the ultimate enthusiast gadget!

Geoff Marshall

On our Making Tracks layout we’ve got 3 fantastic departure boards, the large one showing real time information from Milton Keynes Central and 2 medium boards showing the destinations of our model trains – simply magical!

Pete Waterman

Railcam UK and UKDB have for many years been providing our little departure board widget, buried deep within our live signalling diagrams. The physical boards are the next level though and we recommend them wholeheartedly to any gadget freak or rail enthusiast (or both).
