During the 2007 Christmas season I was challenged to enhance a train display. I came up with the idea of using DCC to operate two trains on one track and DCC-Bitswitch to prevent a collision. This layout is about 10 feet off the ground.
More details are explained on the video website. Sorry the video is a little shaky, I was holding the camera.

Nice video Dennis! Yes, I think Fred at DCC bitswitch has come up with some nice automation devices.

We are building an outdoor layout with about 600' of track, that we wanted to run 5-6 trains at once. We often get to talking and have problems. After looking at some different options, I decided to go with Bit Switch it is fairly simple and straight forward. Fred is great to work with. I do not know of a simpler method of automation.

Hi Dennis-

That's very nicely done. The starting and stopping sections are very smooth.

Best regards,
Bob

PS - Fred is an extremely nice guy!
