* Video: or

This new Midwest Traction Hub Video 835 shows a DCC Programmable Model Train Controller (aka NCE Mini-Panel) controlling 6 MTH Protosound-3 O-Ga. PCC cars on a small loop -- using 1 infrared detector and no blocks.

* We can use a simple method to do this: We run 1 car on the "Mainline" at Speed 6, and we run the other 5 cars in the "Yard Area" at Speed 1.
* When the "Mainline" car crosses in front of the detector to enter the yard, we reduce its speed from Speed 6 down to Speed 1, and we speed-up the front car in the Yard from Speed 1 to Speed 6 as it pulls out onto the Mainline.

* We can run any combination of the 6 cars (6 cars, 5 cars, 4 cars, 3 cars, 2 cars, or 1 car) -- as long as we keep them in the same order

* The system is configured so that it can be used as a public display. It has a "public" pushbutton out in front, labeled "Push and Release. The public can use this public button to start the cars.


* I've included the JPEG images in this posting.

* There is also a "Documentation Album" is in a Google Drive album at .

* The Google Drive album include some additional files -- which are the PDFs and the original Open Office document for the commands.
