1. This 4-part 2011 video shows the RR Concepts "StationMaster" in operation using S gauge trains, but it works with just about any gauge, as long as the current is DC current.
    * This video shows "automatic timed station stops" for 1 train, and "automatic block control" to control 2 trains on the same loop.
    * The stationmaster also does more advanced operations, not shown in this video.

    A. ~~~~~~ CONTENTS: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    This Part 3/4 demos station stops using a block. The Stationmaster controls just the block part of the loop.
