Ah, you're more inland. I thought you were near the coast. It does get cold in the bush at night or so I believe from the weather reports.

Climatic extremes are a bit of an issue over here in regard to modelling. You have be careful with track. One day when it had been hot (40's) for about a week I went into the garage to find my track had raised and buckled at one point from thermal expansion. I try to leave bigger gaps on some points now.

Extra gaps for temperature expansion is a must and like I said I leave sliding fishplates usually at points.If I have a long run of straight track I'll try to put a kink in it just to help with expansion as well as a couple of sliding joints.

Great article there and well put together. I am still a long way from the ecos, but it is something I will consider for the future. I do like the ease of use, the ergonomic "feel" and the fine control but as you pointed out the stop button is an issue. Shame about the 1 second delay on the functions but I am sure you will get used to that. Now that I think about it Dynamis also had a delay but it has being so long since it has being out of the box I cannot remember.

ESU have some outstanding DCC products, well worth a look.

All in all an excellent review and great first hand experience when it comes to making my decision in years to come.

Hi Martin,

this Mobile Control for ECoS product no longer made. There is a new radio control which uses the same body as the Dynamis which is available instead. It has a different wavelength from this one.

cheers

Neil
