I remember arriving late on his site when he had just run out of them but now it doesn't seem there are any more products. Anyone know of similiar like products or circuits apart from Marklin? - I've heard only complicated things about the Marklin reversible circuit set.

      Great link! The basic kit seems to operate exactly like the Zthek module, and the other equipment offered allows for more flexibility if desired. Thanks for

        Great link! The 'basic' kit seems to operate exactly like the Zthek module, and the other equipment offered allows for more flexibility if desired. Thanks for the good information.
