1. This AutoControls.org automatic controls video is a COMPILATION, showing 18 demos, approximately 30 seconds long -- that have been "extracted" from 18 different AutoControls.org videos, that were made between 1989 up through 2017.

    The first 9 clips are DC track power, and the last 9 clips are DCC track power.
    Of the 9 DCC clips, 1 uses DCC-BitSwitch, and the other 8 use the NCE Mini-Panel to control the trains.

    This video was created for display during the August 2017 National Association of S Gaugers Convention in Timonium MD, so it uses S gauge demos when available -- and uses Largescale (#1 ga.) and HO demos when there is no S gauge demo available. Please note that the AutoControls.org ‘Videos’ page contains many additional demos not shown in this compilation video.

    Of the 18 demonstrations, 11 demos use S gauge, 8 demos use Largescale, and 3 demos uses HO gauge. (3 of the demos use multiple gauges.)

    * This video demonstrates the 'Zellner Yard' 4-Track Automatic Switching Block, operating on a 1996 G-Scale display layout. This unit operates 5 trains on a single loop, by holding 4 of them in the yard, until the 5th train gets about 2/3 of the way around the loop, then 'releases' a train from the yard.
    * Please see AutoControls.org for other videos in this series.
