A quick technical tour of the electronics at my 1′ x 4′ model train layout called Dawson Station. I’m using two different Arduino microcontrollers to control the train and play sound. I set this up for the 6th Annual Pacific Model Logger’s Congress in Elsie, Oregon, where the layout won the diorama division and was runner-up best-in-show.

See my other videos to see the layout in action as a switching puzzle, or the real railroad in action before it ceased operation in 2007.
