The box is just the basic part of an antique system. The software is on an optical chip in the box and if it is corrupted, the system is dead. I have a manual that I can have duplicated for you. It will explain operations and how to make a tree and a wiring harness. You still need the track sensors. Not sure, but Trackmate drag system sensor might be adapted, never tried to do it. Best bet is to spend the $$ for the entire Trackmate Drag System and work with modern computing.

 

The only source of the optical program is John Sojak. He has been MIA for over ten years and I was a friend who had been to his shop.
