That's great Bob...Your r/c life will be easier for sure. I found that I could use a piece of an old motor magnet to energize the switches but settled on the teeny rare earth magnets. I don't have too many spare motors and want to keep them assembled. I have since modified the little magnets, instead of making tool boxes, etc., I attached one or two to a piece of wood or plastic strip using CA and then painted them bright red. When not in use, they attach themselves to the locos' pins in the couplers and I can always see where they are. Plus the brass tweezer that I made makes it all ultra simple...just what I wanted! And remember what Jose warned about-be VERY CAREFUL bending the leads on the switches, they can get broken with too much horsepower. I learned that long ago, thankfully.

It doesn't matter if you win or lose, its' how you rig the game.
