I'm not familiar with the MRC command station but it seems like a good idea if there is no other way of getting a rapid emergency stop. Lenz systems have an instant emergency stop on the handset but also an 'E' connection, which I have linked to five a push buttons round the layout. Murphy says the spectacular derailment will always happen when the handset is unplugged or out of reach!

Presume you've checked the current rating of your switch, if it is too low it may become unreliable after a while.

Maplin do four colours of LED's in the handle - Red, Yellow, Blue, and Green.

Handy if you wish to break the layout into different circuits.

They cost £2.29 each.

Looks eminently suitable. I have something similar (though not illuminated) and I found it was a good idea to feed the accessory modules off a separate pair of bus wires which come off the same command station but are not switched. Then if a train runs into a wrongly-set point, cutting the track power allows the short to be reset and the point changed.
