Dude it's impossible to be able to control the Johnson Bar, Throttle, Water Injector valves, Steam Injector Valves, Mechanical stoker, Blower Valve, Brake and Numerous other components from on handheld controller, it would require specially mounted servo moters to trun every nob and pull every lever and cord to operate a steam engine. And much less a Big Boy, they were taken of of operation for a reason. And there are currently no plans to put one back into operable condition. Sorry to burst you bubble but...
