The top of the range Digitrax controller [ DT402R] has every thing you could want for except a on off switch.

This controller has a 9 volt battery that goes flat after about 3 hours if the battery is left in the unit.  To this end a on/off switch can be fitted but will more than likely do away with the warranty.

The 9 volt batteries are not cheap locally.  I purchased from Hong Kong via ebay and the cost for 4 rechargeable batteries, a charger and delivery to Australia for $16.00. Good buying.

I have numbered the batteries so as to keep track of the charged and flat ones.

Shame on Digitrax not installing a ON/OFF switch. Most of the folks I know have sent emails to Digitrax and like me have not had a reply.

That aside I still like Digitrax. I suppose its what you feel comfortable with.
