  • Show me your Drivers Stations

    Looking for different Drivers Stations and options. Have a 4 lane 72ft Carrera layout.

    I'm not sure this is what you are after. My drivers' stations are for a routed MDF track, not a plastic set track. But in case you are interested...

    Driver's Station 1.jpg
    Here is what you are looking at:

    1) Track call button -- clips to track retaining wall. Can be moved left or right.
    2) Terminals for controller alligator clips -- #10 machine screws.
    3) XLR connector socket for controller. Verify correct wiring. Wiring may vary with club.
    4) Lane direction reverse switch. Double pole double throw toggle switch.
    5) Lane fuse holder -- 5 amp fast blow fuse.
    6) Utility bucket -- holds controller, lane labels, whatever. Colored to match lane color.

    NOTE: Do not connect two controllers at the same time. Causes electrical issues.

    There are tons of options for drivers' station design. This is just what I did.

      Thanks Ed. That is what I am looking for, something different than the standard, nothing wrong with the standard, just looking for something different.

          My HO track:
          7306277E-FDAD-45E9-9AAA-8B08AC79E701.jpeg
          Everything is built into a 3/4” x 1 3/4” vinyl strip.

          1/32 rally track:
          50F46660-3D23-4975-840A-F47748A76F90.jpeg
          8-32 bolts recessed into fascia. Yes, there are four. Fourth was connection for old AC2Car connection.
          Controller holder is model railroad throttle holder.

              If I might add to the conversation - if I had to do over again using XLR jacks and plugs, I would incorporate a switch in the brake circuit so I could eliminate the brakes. I find at some times, or with some cars, I would like to have no brakes and let the car coast when power is taken off. Granted, I use basic PM controllers. Higher end models may have brake sensitivity knobs to do the same thing.

                Here's what mine look like. I recently upgraded these. You can connect with alligator clips or an XLR plug. The toggle switch is for the brakes for either type of connection and the black button is the track call button which can be turned off or on at the race director station.



                The color of the station matches the lane (red, blue, yellow and green) and is wrapped over the track's frame so you can tell which lane a person is on from the race controller or a marshal's position. The controller fits in a beverage/french fry holder made for real cars - cheap and simple and works well. The shelf above allows for any cars or equipment one might need during their driving session.
