 - Programming decoders (BEMF, CVs, consisting, trouble shooting...)
 - DCC systems Show & Tell  (those who have a Digitrax, NCE, Lenz, Easy DCC, MRC system) bring your throttle and system (if possible) to show us the pluses and minus of each system and how to use each of them!

Just a short note -

At the last meeting I presented an overview of a few ways electronics can be used on the layout. LEDs, the NCE Light-it and Illuminator accessory boards and (very briefly) Arduino micro-controllers were profiled.  Afterward, a few of you asked for copies of the presentation slides.

You can find links to all of the resources and can download a copy of the slides here.

The regular monthly Observation car will be mailed on  Monday, May 28th. (The Monday before the next meeting.)

See you at the meeting, gs
