Very impressive layout. I like the reduced scenery very much. MRR can be art.

<br />How is access to the track furthest in the back???


Well, I actually managed to have 9 parallel tracks in place. With some difficulty I am able to reach all over the shadow station, but so far it has not been necessary [:p]

Hi all

Updated my WinDigiPet trackplan the other day and included a "Control Panel"

It has turned out to be a great way to get a fast overview of which trains are where with corresponding status active, inactive, part of route etc. - to be recommended Smile

Rgds,
Thomas

I was wondering: what are your experiences with windigipet?

I was wondering: what are your experiences with windigipet?

Hi there

When I started building my existing layout it was from the beginning clear to me that it should be all digital combined with PC control. I did some research including here on the Forum and finally decided to go with WinDigiPet, a decision - with the knowledge and experience I have today – I most definitely would repeat.

WDP covers everything from basic manual to fully automated control (time-table or semi-random), is easy to both setup and maintain – basically very user-friendly. In regard to support the WDP Forum is very handy (www.windigipet.de/foren). Only problem might be that most information etc. is in German. I started with WDP 8.0 and have upgraded a couple of times and now use the German ProX version (the English versions are typically released 6 months after the German).

I use S88 feedback decoders and the whole layout is divided into around 150 blocks and 45 start/stop points. Based on blocks and start/stop points I have defined around 70 routes and combination of routes for automated running. Works very well. WDP also controls traffic in and out of my shadow stations, a turntable, lights and my Titlis bahn. The only thing I really miss is occupancy feedback not only from the tracks but also from the switches – but that is for Märklin and not WDP to work out wink

Before I buildt my existing layout I had a smaller layout where I tested and got to know WDP. From that I earned many valuable lessons which made it easier for me to implement WDP on a larger scale.

It supports many different interfaces such as Märklin-CS2, Uhlenbrock-Intellibox (which I use), ESU ECoS etc. and is quite stable and can handle the biggest layout. Think I have been told that Miniaturwelt Hamburg (www.miniatur-wunderland.de/) also uses WDP. Also nice that it is possible to combine Intellibox and PC control.

Only downside is that WDP is quite expensive compared to other solutions but I find it worth the money.

More information is available at www.windigipet.de. I suggest anybody interested to download the user manuals and the demo version before making the final decision in regard to WDP.

Regards,
Thomas

That is one very impressive layout. With the minimal approach to scenery details, you really focus your viewers' attention to the trains... the real stars of the show.Smile

I've done the same thing with my pre-World War II Lionel O gauge trains: Lots of color and light always makes for a lot of smiles. While I'm currently planning my sixth HO layout -- a smaller, compact 120 X 240 design -- with plenty of scenery, it's refreshing to see a large, "minimalist" layout as yours. Well done!!!

Hi Thomas.

Great simple camera solution ThumpUp .

For me I use OpenShot Video editor on Linux. I don't know all of the functions but I use it in a simple way
for the videos I post.

Thank you guys BigGrin

Downloaded Windows Live Movie Maker and here is the result - feel free to do some sightseeing:

Short tour [3.19/35MB]

Full tour [12.12/133MB]

For such a simple setup I am quite pleased with the result...

Thomas
