I don’t think Walthers sells the controller without buying the whole turntable assembly.
maybe you can find one on e-bay or a local train show.

There are a couple versions of the controller, and you should be sure to get the same one as you
currently use.  Looking at mine, (blue version) it should be no big deal to run wire from one
controller’s  terminals to the other.

I contacted Walthers back when it was announced that there would be a new style control system. Kind of forgot about it but was told they might offer the setup as needed to replace the old style like I have. Give them a call on there tech line and see, oh let me know on here if they do.

Could you wire it into the dcc system and use a decoder to run it?

mmmmmmmmmm
The power wires to the  t/table maybe cut and put in a D.P.D.T  type off switch to select which control does the job.
a DCC unit should still work too.ask a electrical shop for a wiring detail or a local electrician.A grade
I have done many jobs for friends and use to be the CLUB,S electrician for years..
