Central Traffic Control

Realistic model railroad operations require central traffic control (CTC), dispatch control, and central and local operation of switches. Our Central Traffic Control (CTC) / Dispatch software makes this easy to setup and operate and is suitable for any scale.

The central dispatch control is based on Central Traffic Control (CTC) panels. The central dispatch operator has control of all switches remotely or can place each switch in Local control. The system operates on Windows 10 PCs.

Traffic direction on each section of track can be set and signals will respond accordingly.

The CTC/Dispatch computer communicates with the Layout Controllers over SABus - a Scaled Automation customized CANBUS implementation. This allows large numbers of Layout Controllers on the system and easy integration to the CTC computer.

Future developments will include a Dispatching system and Positive Train Control (PTC).
