Some things you DON'T forget !
Like your first Model Railroad power-pack ... & other firsts I'll save for my memoirs !!
It was stashed away for years in Ma & Pas loft ... As 'progress' dictates for some things.
I actually had a couple of even older throttles before this ...
... one of them even had a TRANSISTOR ! in it ... Well I never !
But back in the day, I was inspired by this lil' ol' power-pack, which Pa bought 2nd hand for me as a kid !
It had 'momentum' for one ! ... NICE !
Now you DIDN'T get THAT on old 'Tri-ang' or 'H&M' throttles back in those days.
Anyways without further ado ...
A 'Codar Controls' ... Model ... something something something.
When I stumbled upon the pic. on the Net, I did try to find a better one than this, but no luck.
I gave her away some years back, to a friend who thought he might use her for his kids starter layout.
Probably now rusting in the back of his workshop somewhere !
Oh well my D.I.Y. home built 'momentum' throttle is much better than ^^ that ol' dawg anyways !
But memories are memories !
