Albert,

yes, I could control all 4 proportional channels with one stick. It would need toggle switches or relays that can switch 3 contacts at the same time. If activated the channel is connected with the stick-potentiometer and if deactivated the channel must be connected with a set of resistors simulating the "zero" position of a stick.

But, I don't do it this way. First, being activated all the time the quiescent current of the receiver and headlight (that I use for indicating that loco-power is on) of the loco would  discharge the battery too fast. And second, I just don't need it, because with the magnet switches I use the on/off switching of a loco is so fast and easy.
