Computer Automation ~ Log in to see all the Thread Data.. Petersville Railway Running Trains with Railroad & Co.'s TrainController Software. Hi. Here’s an impromptu video running 5 trains in full auto computer control in ~ TrainController’s ~ ‘Spontaneous Run Mode’ ~ ie. Random Paths/Routes set automatically with block securing and interlocking. [The camera used was a iPhone 6 ~ handheld..!]. Software used is Freiwald's Railroad & Co.'s TrainController [Gold Version 9.0 A3] controlling 5 Trains in Spontaneous Run mode. This is the very first run session running 5 trains in Spontaneous Run Mode. The new Mainline Relief tracks have eased the pressure on the rest of the layout. Signals on the layout are currently being installed along with coding the their logic using TrainController. Petersville Railway is Powered by Digitrax [Loconet].. To date, 3 trains run quite well in Spontaneous run mode without too much train stopping, but here the layout was stacked up with 5 short Intermodal trains to see how the layout handles 5 trains. The result was there wasn’t too much train delay at the stop markers in blocks. Having the reverse loops made watching how the computer routed the trains interesting to watch. The trains ran well without any intervention. The entire layout is now block detected including track sections between train stopping blocks ~ points etc.. The feedback is used to trip signal to required aspect condition as programmed using trigggers in the software. Also as their is a voltage drop using the Digitrax BDL168 Block Detectors [current based detectors], trains can now traverse the layout with same DCC feed voltage everywhere.
