Digital systems are common today for model railroad control. However, they alone do not ensure diversified and reliable operation of a model railroad. It is true, that multiple digitally controlled trains can run independently on the same track. A human operator, however, is usually not able to monitor more than one or two moving trains at the same time. Switching of turnouts and signals is not significantly easier with digital systems than with conventional analog control – not to mention the switching of complete routes and comfortable operation of a whole switchboard.
Only the computer makes digital model railroad control truly perfect. It can guarantee the security of train operation at any time. With the help of additional monitoring functions such as block securing or interlocking based on routes the computer protects running trains from crashing. On request it can also drive some or all trains on the layout as an automatic engineer and thus provide semi- or fully automatic operation of the model railroad. By using a computer a single operator can easily, safely and conveniently accomplish extensive and varied operation of the layout.
With TrainController™, we offer world-class software for model railroad computer control. TrainController™ is characterized by particularly simple and effective use as well as secure operation. Because of its broad range of features TrainController™ is perfectly suited for beginners and professional model railroaders.
With powerful and easy-to-learn editing tools, even inexperienced users with no previous knowledge enter the necessary data into TrainController™ in the shortest time. Thus, only a few input is needed until the first train will run under control of the computer. Even the creation of track images for very large layouts is done with the built-in pen function in almost no time.
