Did Lionel make anything other then the TTL log on a government contract? A nice log but designed for ships and a very poor mounting system if used on a yacht. Also the fish are hard to come by so it’s an expensive log to run. I think given everything I think it’s a good display but I wouldn’t want to use one. They are lots of other logs available in addition to the Walkers but most suffer form from one problem or another when used on a yacht. I think the only practical ones are the Walker MK IV and MK IIIA with a strong personal preference for the MK IV.
All the best,

Study the history of naval architecture and move forward knowing what didnít work before.
Donít waste time making the same old mistakes but instead make new ones and to insure your place in history be sure the mistakes are big ones.

Never listen to someone describe why your project will not work unless they can show you the broken pieces of their own version.
