I'm hoping once Mike is out of the picture, who ever is in control of the DCS system will decide to make it a open system. That's the one thing lacking with DCS is the lack of third party vendors coming up with add ones to enhance what DCS can do. TMCC had lots of third parties over the years. Train, America Studios, Digital Dynamics, IC controls, even Zstuff with there DZ-2500 switch machines with the data driver.With MTH going the way of the dodo, it seems like there's some chance the work by Mark Diveccio will become more important, and maybe expanded. RTC - Remote Train Control - Mark DiVecchio
I know there's been some past interest in cracking the DCS track side signals and so on. I know there's been some folks that have claimed to have done it etc... but nothing in the public domain.
maybe someone will put it out there in the near future.
