I just could not wait.
I added a tethered DC throttle to the layout.
Man ! What an improvement !
So much more fun
to be able to control the engine on the move
without having to run back to the controller after every move.
I think the loco runs a bit smoother too.
I do wish that the throttle box had a hook or a loop
so as to be able to hang it from the facia when not in use
but I'm sure I'll come up with something.
I also added a cabinet
to house all the wiring and whatnot out of the way.
I mounted an old wooden box that some booze came in
and which I have been meaning to chuck out for ages.
(Never throw out anything) and painted it up for fun.
I still need to clean up, shorten some wires,
label said wires and do some cable management.
But running trains just got a whole lot more fun.
Thanks for looking in.
