    No the red plunger is vigilance control, the driver must press it within 30 secos I think otherwise emergency braking applies.

    correct with wrong timings. it varies on the speed of the train from around 45 secs for stationary to around 15 secs for 115km/h plus. other than that that's exactly what it is and does. The vigo is also fitted with task linking so the driver can operate the train (operate the horn, brake controller, master controller and head lights or the foot pedal which will reset the timings)

    Here are few from me. I finally got a little ATSF company train put together so my FT's would have something to pull.

    The track crew better look busy, here comes the boss.

    The business car is a Kato and very nice. I will have to add the lighting kit to this one.

    Haven't had a chance to run these much but I sure do like how smooth they are.

    We went down to the station and stood on the trolley bridge and took these of a passing freight.

    agree with the above, for everyone else. have to try and get myself a Millennium job next fortnight, Deluxe home!!!! comes with it's own touch screen computer, air con with climate control and FM radio and CD player!!! best thing is I press a button on the screen and the train does the rest for me, I just sit there and make sure the system doesn't crash. (That's the computer not the train ;) )
