N Scale Demo Layout

User pagesRob Versluis


This tiny layout is for testing and demo's. It sizes only 100 x 50 CM and could run 3 locos at max.
It also features bi-directional communication as offered by Digitrax in form of Transponding. RailCom would be also interesting, but needs special boosters and receivers. The Digitrax solution is additional like Uhlenbrock's Lissy.

Remarks:

  • Transponding is optional and can be left out.
  • A good alternative to the Digtrax BDL168 is the one MGV50 and two MGV93.

The blue dots are single and the red are double isolated.
The double ones were for a trackdriver system like Dinamo.

The Lenz Mini Gold decoder seems todo also a kind of transponding:

The V200 has 20 as decoder address…
