Welcome to the home of the only and greatest internet controllable model railroad.
The railroad is an N scale layout with an inner loop, an outer loop, a siding and
web controllable transition switches. Locomotives are Atlas DCC units. DCC signals
are generated by a circuit board carrying a Netburner MOD5270 module that we build.
It offers features such as a port expander, a 16 bit 4 channel A/D, 16 channels of
12 bit PWM and a relay driver. With programming it can be applied to a wide array
of Internet of Things applications.
We also build a unique machine vision system
that facilitates model railroad automatic trip navigation and layout location
reporting without sensors (except the analog camera) and wires.
Note that we build custom systems to allow you to build your own internet
model railroad or connect anything you want to the internet. See the
contact page. But meanwhile - click the 'Run Our Railroad' button
in the site navigation box above to operate the trains!

Photo below shows initial testing of the prototype control unit. These can be
built with potentiometers for local control and other features. Spare relays
and high current PWM channels are available for control of building lighting
and other layout features as required. Note that the track circuit is protected
by a current limiting and self resetting fuse. Other functions and internet
connection are maintained with the track shorted. The track driver H bridge
module is inexpensive and easily replaced should that ever be required. Unit is
capable of programming locomotives to the addresses used - there is no need to
buy any other DCC equipment.
