In your opinions what control would you use for a 2020 LGB that I would not have to get up off the chair to turn on and off the loco while running under the tree in day time?
Would like to cramp phoenix sound in the tender.
Thank you for your suggestions,
Toad

The LGB tender has plenty of room in the tender for a medium sized speaker and a sound card glued to the side of the tender on the inside.
Older tenders had no wires between the motor block and tender top, they used 2 screws to make contact with the motor block.
I wired a sound card and speaker to the top and the only problem I had was I had to bend the tabs a little on the motor block to insure better contact.
Now when I think about it, adding a thin copper/brass washer under the screw would have been a better fix.

Hmmm... you know I haven't tested it that far out. It covers the entire backyard which met the 'new' requirement which no longer included the front of the house. I think it could reach 150' with the antenna mod.

I swear by this little setup.
