Motorman Track Power Switch



Add the ability to change between the Motorman and your normal layout control system with just the flick of a switch!  This add-on replaces the Motorman's stock faceplate with an extended version that includes a high quality rocker switch capable of handling full track power - up to 5 amps at 28V.  Just connect the Motorman output and your DC or DCC system into the corresponding terminals, and easily select how you want to operate.  The toggle switch also features a center-off position for turning off power to the track completely.

The Motorman – Automatic Reversing Train Shuttle Controller

New from Iowa Scaled Engineering, the Motorman is an automatic reversing train shuttle controller for both DC and DCC locomotives. Using TrainSpotter infrared proximity detectors at each end, the Motorman will continuously drive the train back and forth, automatically stopping and reversing at the end of track. With control of the speed, locomotive address, delay time, and many other settings, a fully customized experience can be created.

Ideal for train show demo layouts, museum displays, and home layout automation, the Motorman provides an easy, intuitive way to automate the movement of locomotives and trolleys.  It comes complete with the control unit containing the display and interactive buttons, a faceplate for mounting the unit to the fascia, a 12V/3A power supply, and two TrainSpotter detectors with 8′ cables.  Also available is a track power switch, with an expanded faceplate, to permit use with existing DC or DCC control systems.  As with all of our model railroad electronics, the Motorman is open source.
