Club Seminar Series: Operating with Signals

In our eigth installment of the Club Seminar series for 2018 we'll be providing an overview Operating with Signals will be preceeding our August club meeting on the 26th. Its been a goal for a couple of years to signal and detect the yard corner and inside yard area.  This area is highly congested during shift changes egressing the staging yard area.  With Will Lohmann and Scott Coleman dedication and time we are much closer to that goal.  Signaling and eventually detecting this area will give us an opportunity to truely dispatch this area with CTC and opens the door for us to move forwad with ABS signaling the rest of the layout with resisted axles.

In the session we'll cover the basic of signal operation and some recommendations.  At the end of the session we'll field any Q&A that the members have about the long term vision for all this.
