We describe the Control System of the CERN Neutrino Beamline, based on FactoryLink and equipment controllers using PCs running LynxOS. FactoryLink runs on a workstation and connects via communications tasks over Ethernet to both the PCs and the data acquisition systems of the experiments. The PCs access VME and CAMAC directly via the VICbus. Object-oriented control software, entirely data driven, deals with hardware modules and local survey operations. Remote stations have access via X-Windows
