For a while I was undecided between the Multimaus and Z21 systems. There are some advantages to the Z21 tablet-based system like no cables to the layout and easier addition of more engineers. However, the haptic experience of the Multimaus convinced me personally more. And it is a proven, reliable and simple throttle.
On the fiddle yard section, the switches are still thrown in the existing analog system. On the Valkenveld micro-layout, the switches are anyway hand-thrown.
Pay attention with the decoder installation in Kato's Class 66 model. The decoder might block the headlight and needs to be pulled up a bit. A good article (in German) can be found here.
