    If like me your on dcc and use wifi throttles, a little tip I hope is useful for someone is when you upgrade your phone or of you have an old one don't put it in a draw or get rid of it you can still use it without a sim card on the wifi giving you a dedicated throttle

    Works with Tablets as well - Amazon Fire tablets often can be got new for under £40 and the Engine driver app works with it and JMRI. The slightly bigger screen allows you to display the mimic panels, and routing tables for complete wifi control of your layout.

    Samsung do curved screen monitors, but not quite that tight a radius :avatar:

    Not sure where the charging cable goes, but it may bring tears to the eyes :avatar:
