DCC Sniffer – Packet Analyser with Arduino

DCC Sniffer – Packet Analyser with Arduino There are two Arduino DCC libraries floating on the Internet, Mynabay and NMRADCC. Both contain example code that lets them work as a DCC monitor. They show the DCC packets that are detected. However ... they are shown as numbers, which makes it rather diff...

Traincontroller 35: Fast Train Overtakes Slow Train

A quite common situation is that there’s a slow train at a station that wants to go on the move, but that an Intercity is approaching and you want to give this faster train priority to leave the station first. The trick here is to use a condition in the Route of the slow train that says the Block of...

Traincontroller 34: Internal versus External Signals

In the previous video we controlled a physical signal on the layout, using a signal symbol on the switchboard and connect it to a DCC address to control the hardware as well as connect it to an internal block signal for the switch logic. If following the internal signals is all the 'eye candy' you n...

Traincontroller 33: Physical Signals on the Layout

In can be nice to enhance a layout with physical signals, either just for some 'eye candy', or to get closer to a possible ideal to create a prototypical model railway. The blocks in Traincontroller have 'internal' signals by default. These are used by TC to control train traffic. Physical signals o...

Traincontroller 32: Start Schedules With Start-Destination S

In some cases it can be nice to start schedules by operating a switch at the start block, followed by a second switch at the destination block. This can be accomplished via Autotrain, or when using our own defined Schedules. The video shows how to set up both options. Link to video Traincontroller 3...

Traincontroller 31: Extended Accessories - Switches

In the previous video we had a first look at Extended Accessories. We used it as sort of a multi-status flagman, to show different graphics based on different statuses, via which we were able to simulate a counter. In this video we'll again have a look at Extended Accessories, this times used as swi...

Traincontroller 30: Extended Accessories - Counter

Traincontroller 30: Extended Accessories - Counter In the previous video's we had a look at counters. They have the size of one icon, which can sometimes be a bit too tiny to clearly read. There's a larger, a 4x4, /Nixie Tube' counter on the switchboard. This is made using Extended Accessories. Thes...

Traincontroller 29: Start/Finish Operations and Macros

In the previous video we had a look at the LCD counter for 'running trains'. The counter was triggered via Flagman. The other counter in the LCD panel, the Schedules counter, is triggered directly from the Schedules themselves, using so called Start and Finish Operations. With every Schedule it is p...

Traincontroller 28: Counter

The Traincontroller Switchboard can have counters. We could use a counter to for instance show how many trains are in a hidden yard or shadow station, or how many schedules are active, or how many trains are actually on the move at any moment in time, or ... well, what ever you may like to count, up...

SMD LED lighting for loco

Past week a first step was made to get some LED lighting on the two Roco cargo loco''s I have. They have only one headlight, a light bulb (well, actually 2, one for each direction). On the buffers there's the 'suggestion' of lights. The red tail lights are just paint. The white headlight is brought ...

Traincontroller 27: Combi Groups and Train Descriptions

One of the logic functions that is available in TC Gold for the Flagman trigger, is the so called ‘Combi Group’. Inside a Combi we can place Blocks and/or Schedules. The Combi becomes TRUE when a train is on one of the Blocks that is mentioned inside it. If a Schedule is also specified, then the Com...

Traincontroller 26: Flagman Trigger Logic

In the previous video the Flagman was introduced. Flagman can be used to monitor a user specified status on the layout. As soon as that status becomes valid the 'red flag is raised' and a series of Operations can be started. When the status is not valid anymore the flag is lowered. The status that w...
