PM sent Giz and you got it from me...nice little unit..handles up to 8 amps so any loco should be fine (especially any LGB ones).
Oh and DC only I seem to remember

Well, I took a chance and connected AC from an ancient LGB 5003 Transformator to the SUPPLY terminals, with the controlled DC being connected to the Input, and it's working fine.

I've set up a short test track with a couple of diode fitted LGB 1015T tracks at each end and the jobs a good 'un!

Tomorrow, I'll set it up by the tree and connect up a couple of short ToyTrain wagons, and we're good to go....

Look forward to some pics. Those short ToyTrain wagons are a boon on when space is limited.
