the RaspberryPi is a nice hardware for controlling turnouts – without any central station, directly via Wifi… more to come soon: „LANBAHN“.

Sep 2012

continued work on AndroPanel Definition of the SXnet Protocol – very simple, but useful only for Selectrix.

May 2012

I’m currently working on „AndroPanel“, an application for Android tablets for switching turnouts (and 1 loco).

April 2012

there is still analog wiring of model railroads, this photo was taken April 2012

The location of this years „Narrow Gauge EXPO“ was the Pinzgauer Lokalbahn in Austria, close to the Großglockner, Austrias highest mountain. On Sunday, a steam train with an Mh3 attracted visitors – normally modern diesel trains and railcars operate on this narrow gauge (760mm) line.

here a photo from the H0e layout of the „Regionalgruppe Baden-Württemberg der Arge-S“…

January 16th and 17th, 2010
„Lonstoke West“ was on display at the Strassenbahnwelt Stuttgart (Stuttgart Tram Museum)
