    Hello,
    The title is all I could think for for this question. I am needing some help in writing code for a project to control my model railroad, using some kind of transceivers to control the signals and switches. I do not know if mscom control would work.
    I guess my question is, where do I start and what topic would I be looking for?? Any ideas or information would be helpful. I didn't go into a lot of detail here, as it gets into a lot of detail. If this is the wrong forum, I apologize.
    Thanks in advance for you help.

    You might want to look into JMRI (Java Model Railroad Interface) Project as a starting point for your project.

    http://jmri.org/

    A Google search for model railroad computer controlled turnouts signals should turn up some commercial software and hardware for controlling model railroad operations as well as discussions on the topic.

    I did a Google on "controlling model trains with your pc" with out the quotes and got many hits.

    I glanced at several all seem to be what you may be looking for.
