Getting into Digital Control of two or more trains on the same layout can be fairly expensive as you need to buy an expensive COMMAND unit.
The loco's are slightly more expensive too, but once you have them, the command module will allow you to turn on lights, change crossing points, operate boom gates and control just about anything.
But what if you are just starting out?
This project starts you out with the ability to control 2 loco's on the same track.
The project is designed to deliver up to 2 amps to the rails and this
will allow two trains to be operated at the same time.
Don't forget, you are delivering 1 or 2 amps.
Here is a photo of the track connectors:
The voltage is supplied to the track via these rail joiners

MORE TEST EQUIPMENT
Talking Electronics has a number of pieces of TEST EQUIPMENT to help in the design and testing of projects.
Of course you can use a multimeter for most of the testing but some of the "tricky" faults need a special piece of equipment.
You may only need a LOGIC PROBE once a month, but the project you are designing will come to a stand-still if you can't locate a problem.
We designed all these projects because we needed them ourselves.
Add one of them to each order you place with Talking Electronics and eventually you will have the whole range.
