Engine Driver (Android App) Settings

By

The following are the settings that I use, and would notionally recommend, for the Engine Driver Android App for use on the four club layouts.

Some info has just been received from the Modelling the Railways of Queensland Convention committee (not an RMCQ thingie) and there is now planning for a Convention for later in the year going on. So if you are interested in QR type railways, then circle the date in the calendar - Saturday 17th September 2016.

Read more in the attached newsletter that has just been released.
