Full throttle

I spent about an hour in the shop this evening, finishing off the cutting file, plasma cutting the steel pieces and then welding up the throttle assembly for my 'MARVELOUS MACHINE'. The throttle lever is somewhat similar to the one I built for our train last year. The clunky mechanical switch will be much more dramatic than a simple on-off electrical button. On top of that it adds a whole lot of story telling detail to the piece.
