Larry and Tony:
A quick note to report how delighted I am with the ‘REV N’ version of the ‘Hare’. I received the 13 Hares last week and installed and configured all 13 in under an hour – perfect performance, no surprises. When coupled with NCE’s powerful, yet elegantly simple ‘macro’ system, the Hare provides a level of flexibility and set of capabilities that is simply unmatched in the hobby today. I’ll be back for about 25 more ‘REV N’s’ as I continue to convert my layout to this product.
Thank you for an highly innovative, labour saving and affordable device – keep ’em comin’!
