The National T-TRAK Layout, as well as other large layouts across the country, has chosen Digitrax to power the layout.
"The Digitrax Complete Train Control® system brings fun and realism to model railroading. Using the LocoNet Network and the many devices that work together on LocoNet, we incorporate many different technologies to deliver a system that handles all aspects of model train operation and layout command control. With Digitrax you can run many trains at the same time just like on the real railroad. You can operate lights and sounds on the trains and at fixed locations around the layout. You can set up detection and signaling so you'll know where your trains are at all times with Digitrax Transponding technology. Transponding also lets you implement train location and identificaion on your layout. Reversing loops can work automatically with autoreversing built in to boosters or with stand alone components. Built in short circuit and power management technology gives you smooth operation with few interruptions. You can use a computer for layout control if you wish but it is not necessary. Set up and programming for all Complete Train Control devices on LocoNet is simple and intuitive."
With Digitrax LocoNet®, the Complete Train Control network, you can start out small with a starter set and build from there until your railroad empire is just what you have always dreamed of! Adding components is simple and it's easy to add new features and expand existing features by simply plugging equipment in to the network. LocoNet is engineered to seamlessly handle high traffic and large numbers of attached devices on every layout, from the smallest to the largest, without the need for additional "bus" wiring for layout command control devices. LocoNet incorporates all aspects of controlling your trains and your layout.
