Model Railroading Club is working to build a hacker space's model railroad -- Autonomous Control Software and the hardware to use it, 3D printed car loading and unloading mechanisms, and laser-cut structures.

We have decided to build a oNe-Trak layout, and are in the process of building 4-3'x3' 90° turn along with straight-sections as available.

Current Electronics Hardware:

  • Motor controller (more details needed)
  • Arduino (more details needed)
  • 2x Arduino MCP2515 CAN Bus Module TJA1050 Receiver SPI Module (experimental purpose)
  • 3x Pro Mini Enhancement ATMEGA328P 16MHz 5V Compatible to Arduino PRO mini
  • 5x MAX485 Module/RS485 Module/TTL to RS-485 Module Converter Board PS
  • 1x USB 2.0 to RS485 Converter Adapter Module
  • 5x 3-wire Sensor Module IR Infrared

Electronics Hardware being Shipped:

  • 1x Arduino MCP2515 CAN Bus Module TJA1050 Receiver SPI Module (experimental purpose)
  • 1x L298N Dual H Bridge DC Stepper Motor Drive Controller Board
  • 1x Pro USB-CAN USB to CAN BUS Converter Adapter
