Class MultiThrottle

  • public class MultiThrottle
    extends java.lang.Object

    • MT+L757<;>L757 On T throttle, add loco L757.
    • MT+L1234<;>L1234 On T throttle, add loco L1234.
    • MTSL1234<;>L1234 On T throttle, steal loco L1234.
    • MTAL757<;>R1 On T throttle, loco L757, set direction to forward.
    • MTAL1234<;>R0 On T throttle, loco L1234, set direction to reverse.
    • MTAL757<;>V42 On T throttle, loco L757, set speed to 42.
    • MTAL1234<;>V42 On T throttle, loco L1234, set speed to 42.
    • MTA*<;>V16 On T throttle, all locos, set speed to 16.
