Scarborough Model Railroaders – Model Railroad Layout

The exhibit consists of a portable modular HO-scale layout. Locomotives are controlled using a microcontroller based digital command control (DCC) system. The full exhibit includes a model of a Budd Rail Diesel Car (RDC) with an embedded wireless camera so visitors can see the view from the “driver’s window”. Operation of the RDC is automated using a Raspberry Pi running open source Java Model Railroad Interface (JMRI) software.
