3. How does LCC interoperate with existing alternatives?

4. What distinguishes LCC from layout automation and control systems that have preceded it?

The first two years of the HO scale St. Louis division


Stephen M. Priest, MMR and editor of Railroad Model Craftsman will be speaking about the first two years of the HO Scale St Louis Division. This railroad is 3400 square feet and is about 1/3 complete. It features the Santa Fe Railway in 1978. The route is fictitious although the Santa Fe did repeatedly try to acquire and or build a line from Chicago through St Louis to Kansas City. We are building the railroad as if one of these attempts early last century had panned out. The railroad features state of the art benchwork, wiring and hand laid trackwork from Fasttracks. It also features innovative lighting with 100% LED use for all illumination both in structures and in rolling stock. Electronics planning will include DMX lighting and sound allowing time of day and night to be computer controlled. DMX can also create such effects as thunderstorms that roll across the layout from end to end featuring lightning and thunder. The railroad is being built by a group of 15 modelers in the Kansas City area under the direction and design of Stephen M. Priest, MMR. Join us for a look at a new railroad for a new century.
