Re: [Z_Scale] DCC Photo eye detection question
- don't ask me. my layout is a runner with one turnout to back up in. did you get the video about the worlds largest layout. Let me know I'll forward it to you. About your "roundabout" I was just kidding. I told you I am one of the biggest jokers. Did you get the Wally World video? Lee

I knew you would ask that, lol. I just didnt want to confuse myself at that point. I knew I had options, I just hadnt gotten that far yet, until now.
So.......Where do I get the photo eye mechanism to work it autonomously?

I was cleaning out my files this weekend and found just what you want: Model Railroader, Dec 2006 pg 94 - an automated reversing loop with all the details.
Hope this helps,

If you're OK with building your own circuit boards, check out "http://home.cogeco.ca/~rpaisley4/CircuitIndex.html#index" (remove the quotes) for all kinds of model RR electronics, including some automatic reversing loop circuitry.
