I have an all performing Massoth controller which, as you know, allows me to control umpteen locos all at once. However, I would like a secondary contoller so that a friend ( if I've got one) or my grandson, can operate the same locos. Obviously only one loco would be under one controller at once. This would mean that we can 'drive' different locos at the same time. I don't want this to be as expensive as the marvellous Massoth - so
a) is this possible?
b) which cheaper controller do you suggest?
c) are my intentions clear?
THANKS Clive

c) Message received and understood....

Yes that will work - but, is your existing hand controller tethered or radio. The LGB unit uses a different radi signal to the Massoth Navigator. You can use both radio systems together but by that time you might just as well buy another Navigator.

Clive, you did not mention if you are using a Dimax Central station or an MTS3 unit with the Navigator handset.

If you are using MTS3 then you can connect any LGB MTS handset directly to the "LGB Bus" connectors (not the Dimax connector).

If you are using a Massoth Dimax Central station then you can use LGB MTS handset (55016/55016) BUT you will need to use the Massoth 600A Transducer (#8138501) to convert the LGB bus protocols to the Dimax Bus protocol.

BEWARE: connecting a LGB handset directly to the Dimax bus MAY damage the handset and the Dimax unit.
