BTW, Lionel LCS is super expensive. I’m not endorsing it. I can’t afford it, but it is the only real option to solve Clem’s question. From what we have discussed, JMRI won’t run on an iPad. Sure tell Clem to buy a Surface...
JMRI works great on an iPad, or any web enabled device for that matter, using the built in web interface. Anyone with a tablet or laptop can pull up my layout map and run it. I've even run it on my phone, although the display is too small to be practical.
The layout map is exported from my AnyRail plan, and loads the geometry exactly as is into JMRI. You have to set up the mapping of turnouts, macros, and so on in JMRI itself, but I imagine that is similar to other options in that regard. JMRI in turn controls my NCE command station via RS232.
