DO YOU LIKE DESKTOP CONTROLS ON A LOCCOMOTIVE OR LIKE AAR CONTROL STANDS?

Desktops suck.   You have to bend forward to reach anything and there is very little legroom underneath.

The traditional control stand is much better for switching, and is not that bad to run backwards if you spin the seat around.  Can't do that with a desktop.
