Digital Command Control systems are available in many forms, including the ability for full automation of a layout. One such system is iTrain Layout Control, as MARK CHIVERS explains.
WHEN deciding upon a digital control system for a layout, it is worth considering the future as well as the present day needs, as there are many options and price points available. One area of consideration is compatibility. Is the system you are opting for expandable or compatible with other products? Do you want to manually operate your layout or look to include elements of automation? This is especially useful for larger layout set-ups. While some systems may appear standalone, they may also have the ability to work with thirdparty software, for example.
Above: iTrain 5 is a layout control software package that can bring fully automated operation to your layout.
