Wayne Gramlich's Train Projects
This document only lists my train related personal
projects. The full list of
all my personal projects is available along
current priority list.
My current train related personal projects are:
The Overall Plan
This the overall plan for my model railroad
Model Railroad Speed Control
This is speed control circuit designed by
Juergen Kuehnel that uses back EMF from
the train motor to control overall speed.
This circuit has excellent low speed control.
Model Railroad Network
While the model railroad industry has
embraced digital command control for
engine control, the control circuitry
for switches, lights, and signals is
stuck back in the 60's. I have a project
underway to see if I can bring the control
aspects forward to the 90's.
Hot Wire Machining
It would be neat if you could design a layout
on the computer and just have machine fabricate
all of that mountainous terrain. The idea
behind hot-wire machining is to do just that.
An X-Y-Z table is constructed that can move
a hot wire over a piece of styrofoam.
mrdesign Model Railroad Design Software
Just for fun I started working on some software
to help layout my N-scale layout. The software
is pretty primitive right now.
