Command Control Accessories

11 07 2012

We’re charging ahead with our updates to our layout wiring series. Again, all of these articles can be found on our permanent modeling projects pages which you can access through the menu bar above.

Check out the links for detailed and illustrated wiring instructions.

This week we take a look at three common ways to equip your accessories with command control. For the wide variety of trackside accessories, we return to the SC-2 and the ASC which we introduced last week with switch controls.

Also this week, we show how to wire the OTC, the Operating Track Controller, to operate uncoupling and operating tracks. The operating tracks do require some minor modification go get peak performance, but we’ll show you how to do this quickly and easily.

In the coming weeks, we’ll add in a few more controllers and then complete our look with an overview of a “typical” layout and what it would need for power and command control. Stay tuned!
