Hi Fabrice

Wow - all that work and now to start againScared

Having nearly completed my very first layout, I do feel some of what you're feeling in the fact that what do I do with my time nowUnsure . However I have yet to set it up fully and have it running as I want. I also want to host several M Club UK days and exhibit it.

So best of luck with the MkII version and may I ask what are your initial thoughts for the MkII version?

Fabrice,

I have just watched your video !
It is a wonderful layout and I am particularly impressed with your operations and running of trains.
You have this superbly worked out !
I really enjoy the automation of trains starting and stopping and waiting for blocks to become free.

A question from me : are your blocks sequential so that the pattern repeats itself with one train always following the one in front, or does your program switch blocks around so that the tracks and sequence of the trains changes ?

It reminds me of when I was at Disneyland years ago and we went on "Space Mountain" roller coaster in the darkness in and out of tunnels and climbs and drops down again. What a ride that was !Cool

Thank you for posting a great video !

Regards,BigGrin
John

Hi John,

The course is totally random. The sequence of blocks is based on the first available block compatible with the direction of the loco which is currently processed, and also compatible with the block length and train length. This random mode is the most impressive for a "demo".

But there are quite a lot of parameters which can be adjusted with Rocrail... I'll investigate deeper in my next layout.Glare

Cheers

Dear fabrice,
The layout is very nice. But it reminds some MIBA styles.
You lose or lost a real bargain to prove the dignity of a large locomotive shed circle with a diameter of 122 cm.
And you show much obsession with the use of three-way-turnouts (5214, 24630, 2270).

Hi Christos,

Well, dignity is one thing, available space is an other thing.
As a result, my layout was a compromise...

If I could have a big area available, I will certainly use such large implementation... Maybe one day, or in my dreams.

Anyway, I agree with you that K 3-way turnouts should be avoided if possible (not very stable on short locomotives)...

Cheers
Fabrice

....... Thank you for the answer, you know my thoughts at the other topic, K flexible track etc. and the fact that you live in a large city like Lyon. And you have different pictures from that station. ... ok, that is good !!

Hi,

Sorry, "Trossingen I" hasn't resurrected.
But just in case some people wish to study the plan, I provide the final version done with Wintrack 10 as attachment file.

Trossingen II nows fully occupies me.

All the best
Fabrice
