Traction update

Power and traction changes are now complete. The Helmsman controller is in place to operate the main line, a shuttle unit can control the rack railway and various changes to locomotive wiring are complete. All we need now is some summer weather! Last locomotive through the workshop was 298.56, now restored to running on track power with the option of an external battery pack. This allows more prototypical Austrian (Steyrtalbahn) consists to run, which keeps the General Manager amused.
