Computers in Model Railroading
Dr. John A. BateWhy would you want to connect a computer to a model railroad layout? There are a lot of reasons. If you use DCC, you've already connected computers to your layout. Probably a lot of them. Would you like wireless throttles? You can do that, probably without spending a dime. Do you want to program today's most complex DCC decoders with ease? Have a fully-functional signalling system? Use a USS-style dispatcher's console? Connect a computer to your railroad and you can do all of these things and more.
