Home made throttle holders
The layout as grown to the point that I wanted some more but they don't seem to be in shops any more and on line they are now about $15.00 each which is quite a bit more than what I had paid before so I started looking at making my own using scraps. It needed to be simple and only had to work with Digitrax throttles.
1 Hard board back 4.25" x 3.00"
2 Hard board fronts 4.25" x .562"
1 Plywood bottom 3.00" x 1.00"
2 Plywood sides 4.00" x 1.00"
I test fitted several types of Digitrax throttles and they all fit nicely. I don't know if this would work with throttles of other DCC brands.
I like these home made holders well enough that I may make these standard for the home layout as they will all look the same. Then adapt the other holders for use on the Ntrak modules.
