    Default Waxhaw Larry's Train

    Larry emailed me tonight with the status of his train. I will let him tell you about it. It sounds too cool. We want video. We want video. We want video.

    Come on Larry, tell us about your train.

    What a magnificent train setup. Kids must go nuts watching it. I bet the look just as the sun is going down must be fantastic. GREAT idea ... !

    Add an ELL, 8chan controller, and some way to power it and the lights and this very awesome addition to the display will make people's jaw break their big toe in two seconds flat. LOL Great job Larry!!

    Just my 2 cents and from past experience; I don't think the ELL is the way to go with this.

    Thanks all for your kind words.
    It is powered by an ELL and a 16 channel board. At present the board controls: train start, lights and horn. Next year I may add a second board. Got to go. More later
