Project: BackYard Transit System
Hello Everyone, I'm starting on a HO Scale Project in my backyard and always wanted to make a working style Subway system. By the way I always love NYCTA Subway system..
I will be creating a 4 track loop mainline with stations stops for local and express including going underground with in ground camera systems and LED Stripes lights to light up the tunnel as the train pass by, and make stops. Now i also plan to make this Fully Automatic. I plan to build this route as real as Real life train operations! I know this will take time maybe 2 years to complete the entire project and will post updates and videos for everyone to see
Hardware and Software Im using for my Railroad
So i heard of CTI Electronic Model Railroad System based on google.com and orders the starter pack and so far i hooked everything up and added 1 sensor to a demo layout and got it to detect the train on the track... and now up to learning the the Train Control Language for the CTI and seems I have to program everything to work right!
I also have the MRC tech 6 sound controller IM using.
1) Have anyone ever use the CTI system and what is your view on the system ?
2) Do anyone have a Railroad system that is Automatic and use something else besides CTI ?
3) Can anyone give me Pointers or ideas how to make this project come to life?
Thank you all in advance for reading and helping me out on this project! I will Post Videos and Pictures in the futures on the progress of the Railroad.
