Advanced Topics in DCC Speed Matching
By Mark Granville
This seminar will discuss various challenges and frustrations that come up when speed matching locomotives that have decoders from different manufacturers. Examples will be presented, causes will be discussed, and solutions will be offered. A short review of speed matching procedures will be given, but it will be assumed that the attendee already has some familiarity with the concept of DCC speed matching.
Adding Battery Radio Control to your HO, S, O & G Scale Engines
By Don Sweet
Why add battery r/c control? Because it adds more fun time to running your trains. Imagine no more track cleaning, stalls/shorts on switches or complex reverse loop wiring. Continue to use your track powered engines while the battery powered trains operate around them or on a new section of track. In this clinic you will see examples of HO, ON30, O and G scale locos. We will discuss lithium battery technology, proper charging and runtimes.

Computer slide show about engineering, designing and building automatic block and interlocking signals for my DC/DCC layout. My signals don't require a computer, can be installed location by location and are debugged with a voltmeter. Includes selection and use of commercial components, how to implement basic ABS and interlocking logic, communication between signal location and discussion of modeling searchlight mast and dwarf signals following B&M/MEC practice and rule books.
