    * Two infrared Z-Stuff block signal detectors are used, one at each end of the track.

    * As demonstrated in the video, the two locomotives will travel back and forth from one end to the other end of the same track.

    * Each loco uses one of the detectors to position itself with respect to one end of the track, and uses time delay to position itself when travelling in the other direction.

    * A single pushbutton can be used, so that the public can push it to cause the locos to make one automatic "back and forth" cycle.
    * Alternately, the operator can close a switch, to cause the locos to run back and forth continuously.

    * Note that NCE strongly recommends NOT using the Power Cab for O gauge -- but it seems to work for these demonstrations involving very low speeds and pulling only 1 car.

    * Two infrared Z-Stuff block signal detectors are used, one at each end of the track.

    * As demonstrated in the video, you can use a "FWD" and a "REV" button to allow the public to control the train. The Mini-Panel will prevent the train from traveling any further than the detectors at the ends of the track.

    * Alternately, a single pushbutton can be used, so that the public can push it to cause the loco to make one automatic "back and forth" cycle.
    * Alternately, the operator can close a switch, to cause the train to run back and forth continuously.

    * An infrared Z-Stuff block signal detector is used at the near end closest to the camera which you can see, and time-delay is used to run the loco down to the other end.

    * As demonstrated in the video, a pushbutton will cause the loco to make one "back and forth" cycle, or closing a switch will cause it to run back and forth continuously.

    * Note that NCE strongly recommends NOT using the Power Cab for O gauge -- but I had already recorded my video, and it worked fine for my demonstration.
