You could start here, John:-

http://yourmodelrailway.net/view_topic.php?id=5707&forum_id=151

Perhaps you could then start a separate thread on the subject within the RR&Co area? There are several of us interested and taking steps towards computer control.

John Rr & co is extremely good but can put an extensive dent in your wallet

There are other systems available at less cost

I have looked at Itrain which is quite good and far less cost

John,  RR&Co is about the cost of two DCC sound locos.  Put in that context, it's good value - even the Gold version.  Sure, there are cheaper styles on the market, but you get what you pay for.  You might find out you can't get everything you want out of a cheapie and then it's not a cheapie any more.

I looked at many of them before I went TC Gold.  Unless you are a geek (unlike me), you will struggle to understand how to drive them.  I wouldn't have attempted it without the expertise of the TC gurus on here - I certainly wouldn't try any of the cheapies unless you know someone who can help you.

Thanks for the info, I've been side tracked with building a shed in the garden for spraying my locos, but I have been trying the demo rr&co but have only got as far as track design at the moment. Trying to put the schedule of locos on is where I temporarily gave up ! I sort of feel that I need it all set up to play and understand it !

Just post any question in the RR&Co sub forum, John.  You will get all the help you need.  I might even know the answer myself - if it's a very simple point.  :thud

Hi John

Dont mean to divert your layout thread but following on from the posts above:

I am in the process of editing/rewriting the RR&Co tutorial so it is easier to find specific sections.........meantime I suggest you work through the tutorial which starts with building a simple track plan and works on through what are supposed to be easy stages to running automatic schedules................the trick is to take it very slowly a step at a time. Just post any questions in the RR&Co sub forum the moment you have a problem......there are, as Geoff and Max said, a number of us who are hooked on the system and love to help

Regards from Vancouver

Very impressive, John. I too very much like the rusting effect. It looks every bit the same as the prototype. Just one thing - not sure how that poor chap got onto the gantry, but you might want to build him a ladder to help is descent:lol:

Great work.

They have to remove the ladder to stop the naughty children from climbing up on to it !!!!;-)
