Welcome to the AutoControls.org website. This site contains videos and some plans for automatic model railroad controls — mostly for automatic operation of multiple trains on one track. Most video demonstrations are done using Largescale, with a few demos done in S gauge.
Most videos show controls using analog-type “relay logic” to control DC locomotives. The Largescale controls typically use LGB switch motors with the plug-in relay points. Several videos talk-about or demonstrate DCC, and one uses the Railroad Concepts ‘StationMaster’, which is a microprocessor-operated controller for DC trains. The oldest video dates back to 1989, and the newest one was recorded in late 2013.
PLANS for many of these units are in the old “Plans & Archives” area.
