I just returned to my house following a 2 year work assignment cross country with GE doing some Turbine engineering, while trying to avoid working $12/hr relocating rich peoples homes, while my home goes under (uhh, as an engineer, I must make 4 times that to avoid losing my home). During my evenings after work I scratchbuilt a full size HO scale petroleum refinery while I pocketed enough money to take 2 months off after my assignment. Now while I focus on trying to find my next job, or consider selling my home and moving where there are jobs for degreed experienced engineers, I have a couple months to enjoy my house AND MY MINIATURE RAILROAD SYSTEM. So I cleaned 160 feet of rails, and swapped some wires around. Within another 20 minutes, the Aristo Craft (Crest) walkaround remote control throttle was hooked up and working.
This remote walkaround control is better than I expected ! I was anticipating G-scale toy train around the christmas tree operation. No way man !!! This thing rocks for true realistic HO operation ! Yes, there is a built in delay to each move, but patience and safety go hand in hand, and it is real enough for me to say "WOW, What an experience !" Thanks again to all who suggested this controller. I never doubted you, but just feared major disappointment.
