My Digitrax throttles of various types have taken quite a beating over the years getting dropped after being set on the edge of layouts and just being used a lot. I hope to take better care in the future with the throttle holders I built late last year and explained in this post.
This throttle has some new features I like such as being able to actually turn it off without removing the battery which was the cause of some of the excessive wear and tear on my old throttles.
Infrared ( IR ) receiver. For this layout IR works just fine and the UR90 is less than 1/3 the cost of the UR92. I also found out that my old UR91 that I was not sure was working at all does still work as an IR receiver so with it at the other end of the layout the coverage is very good.
creating a place for the DCC system in a drawer, I found myself opening the drawer to check the track status light on the command station. Then it occurred to me that I should connect the track status LED on the panel, Duh !
