I built 2 for less than the price of one Railstand. Does it look as nice? Maybe, does it work for programming /testing at any voltage you put into it???? YES.

I tested 6 engines on this stand in about 15minutes (including beer break).

Time to build it? About 3 hours (including a beer break).

A programmer or power supply (AC, DC, DCC) will plug right in.

Built in holder for the EZ Rollers (the most expensive part. 6 rollers is like $80)

Need one built? Contact me or copy mine

There is probably several threads already addressing this... OH WELL

Your stand looks very professional. I used a 1X4 and some sectional track and its on my work bench. Not pretty, but works. I need to construct a smaller one to have near my computer when using my Digitrax PB-4 for programming locomotives. The one I have is too long to fit on the computer desk.

Thanks.
