Forward and reverse are controlled by the Johnson bar, shown here.

This is actually a giant, home made, center off, double pole double throw reversing switch,

which, you guessed it, reverses DC polarity to the drive motor, just like we've always done it. :thumb:

About the size...:old dude:

No. 11, while running on the same 7 1/2 inch gauge track, is HUGE when compared to regular 7 1/2 standard gauge.
