  5. Video #4 - 2008 Steam Up

    This YouTube video shows the Susquehanna S Gaugers 4th annual "Steam Up" held April 4 & 5, 2008. Members "challenged" several Northerns by hooking them to a 143-car train. Another member wired up a back-to-back pair of automatic reverse loops, with an automatic passing siding in one of the loops. There is also a demo of an automatic block controlling 2 trains on the same track, using a RR Concepts 'Switching Interface Module'.

  6. Video #656 - Automatic Controls Demo by Mark Anderman, Williamsport Pa

    Videotaped 4/1/07, at Susquehanna S Gaugers Steamup by Chris Cooley and edited by Mark Anderman, this shows 3 trains running automatically on the same circle of track, using an automatic control system wired up by Dennis & Corvin Oberholtzer and Mark Anderman, using stock Gilbert pressure-activated track trips & semaphore. (6 min)

    Comments: We believe this system could probably be modified by removing the block in the mainline, and using just the 2 blocks in the sidings. The semaphore would control power to the sidings; i.e. at about 2/3 of the way around the loop, the train on the mainline would "release" one of the trains parked on the sidings, thus maintaining spacing between trains, but without using the 3rd block on the mainline. [===] This scheme is demonstrated in the largescale video "How It Works" (YouTube .Quicktime) which shows a similar arrangement in largescale.
