When I originally planned the railway I was thinking of narrow gauge operation with manual switches, now after nearly 6 mths running I am thinking of installing some form of CTC control to speed up the traffic flow and above all cut down paddling around in the floods!.

I am wondering about the options for controlling LGB type switch machines I have several spare in stock plus a number of Lenz LE 110 stationary decoders.

John,

The Lenz LE-110 decoders will not work with the LGB turnouts.. The Lenz LE-110 is for twin coil turnouts.. You need the LS-120 decoders for the LGB turnouts.. You could get some Digitrax DS64's if you need to add push buttons.. Hope this helps..

Thanks for the advice I will probably do a trail installation at one "interlocking" first, with control from the trottle & maybe a JMRI computer interface later.

I was originally attracted by the idea of a large scale narrow gauge "Dark Territory" style of operation with hand thrown switches and several towns. Since completing the main line trackage the idea of some form of remote point control would make running a lot easier, particulary during the rainy season. We have had 6 months rain in 4 weeks basically leaving much of the garden flooded I am sure thankfull I went for raised construction.
