Now, I don't know about the Botchmann "controller",
but I would imagine that it needs to have a DC power supply.
Unless the train is DCC, which has AC on the rails but is controlled by the loco's chip.
This little device is probably ment for a DC wall pack to make it work.
The thing seems to have forward/reverse and a "throttle"...
so, I think it needs a DC power supply.
If it isn't working correctly, I would find a better power pack.
I would prefer a better power pack anyway.
Look for an older MRC pack,
they can be found on fleabay, etc. for not much money.
These are only my opinions.


It doesn't matter if you win or lose, its' how you rig the game.
