Reverse Direction Issue
« on: November 11, 2016, 05:45:59 PM »
Here is a suggestion that should be very easy for Tim to implement. How about not allowing direction of travel to be changed while the loco is moving. My fat fingers on the controller have accidentally done it more than once. Terribly hard on the drivetrain.

 That sounds like an excellent plan as I just know it will happen to me but my bit will be due to fingers that just don't bend so well as that Aurther Ritus did a job on me. (Misspelled on purpose.) 

 Cheers, Darryl

I agree.  This feature should be written into future software updates.
