Re: Fleischmann twin centre

Hi Brian i have found another Traffo and tried with this one, as soon as you apply the loco to the track it shoots off at full speed but i am unable to control the speed from the Traffo as it does absolutly nothing. Will try again with you suggestion and see what happens.
