Folks, I have two kits left, and that's all. If someone is really wanting as assembled unit, I can build one or both of the kits, again that would cause a delay as I do them as I get time.

If there's really a lot of interest in more, I can order more parts, but it'll take some time as I need more PCB's, boxes, and power supplies, those take a few weeks.  Obviously, the Digikey parts come in a couple of days.

Gunrunner John, Question, does this kit help the Cab 1, Cab 1L, Legacy Remote, have better control of the engines at far corners of a layout? Specially if the trains in a part of the layout 15 feet away from the TMCC/Legacy bases? Sometimes my Cab 2 loses control of the engines. Just wondering if this is the fix. Thank You very much for all you do for our hobby. 

Larry, I had a dead spot on my track that I could not overcome. It developed over a period of time. I tried everything.....I purchased this booster for John, and it was the best $$$$ I have ever spent on my layout. Well worth the investment.

That's the problem that the buffer addresses.  The link between the remote to the command base sounds like what Larry is asking about, the buffer won't help with that issue.  For a CAB2, I've used a hi-gain antenna on the command base, and on one instance, I actually used a 2.4ghz WiFi amplifier on the command base.  That really increased the range, and for really large layouts, it would probably be a significant help.

Hello, I have not started my layout yet, but have the design done.  Just finishing the room where it all will go.  The layout is 32' long and 13' wide.  I'm very new to all of this so I will admit I'm ignorant to all the electrical things as of now.  So, how does this all work?  Will it help me in the long runs I have? Cost?  I can send a picture of my layout if you need to evaluate my need.  I have a large collection of MTH and Legacy Lionel.  Thank you Bob  Huntnfish737@hotmail.com

I'm former North Central (1978),  then through mergers: Republic Airlines, then Northwest, then Delta. Four different uniforms in the closet. I retired off the 747-400 three years ago. I flew the 747 for almost 10 years and it was a real kick, but my most favorite in my 39 year career was the 757. Northwest only had the 757's, but after the merger with Delta got to fly the 767 also. Same type rating, and we would see a mix of both on our rotations. I think most of the 757's and 767-300's are now parked. Only the 767-400's are being used. If I could go back and fly one more trip, it would be on a 757. Unfortunately, only in my dreams....

Did you ever operate out of Minneapolis? If you did, you very likely knew my aunt. She has been with Northwest/Delta since 1975, and will be retiring next spring.
