Here's the project that has kept me fom getting anything done on the layout for a while. Its a facsimilie of an EMD "drum" style control stand. My MRC power pack is housed inside and is connected by simple mechanics to the throttle lever and the reverser on the control stand so I can run trains from my own train simulator. The instrument panel is nonfunctional but pulling the horn cord activates a continuous loop tape of diesel horn sound until it is released. I've alwyas liked these engineer's stands since the first time I saw one pictured. Thanks to BDC for pics he posted some time ago that were very helpful in the completion of this project.
