I have several Lionel Gantry Cranes that I will use in a "dock" area. The will ride on the Gargraves special track - Bumper on each end. Toyed with making them motive as I have seen shown on the forum but decided to postpone that for a later date.
The controllers and track placement don't work well together. I was planning to cut the control wire, extend it, hidden, to a location where the controller boxes will be located. Makes it more fun to use and useable. Is this workable, electronically? Cutting the wires blasphemy and ruining the value of the cranes dramaticaly?
