Thank you all for the kind words. I will keep plugging away and post when I can. Do you want more videos or pictures or both?

Okay Rick.

I was testing out what I wanted to do to control the layout. I have one of each manufactures systems.

Going with Digitraxx using cell phones as throttles.

Video of one phone controlling two locomotives. I have two cell phones but not sure I could control 4 trains at one time.

I also like that car Larry, nice build. However, using cell phones as throttles is beyond my scope of railroading.

4 trains at once would be a good challenge.
Good looking car.

Great ore car!!! However as far as cell phones for throttles the reason I go in the train room is to get away from cell phones!

no cell phones That's sort of my opinion as well. I tolerate DCC only cause of the sounds, but it wouldn't take much for me to go back to a rotary rectifier! Russ
