  1. Ray/et-al I did see a TCA York meet progress report that it will be another few months for the release. FYI - I have been using a PC based system to control my MTH layout for about 1 year. It does NOT use any MTH special inside hooks to comm with the PS2 trains. Here is the general background about the system development if you interested. the_Other_Ray re: SKylar = User friendly MTH train control approach This info is > 1 year old (aka before my cancer adventure so things may have changed......FYI.... ////////////////// Inspired by a young man who has celebral Palsey and essentially uses a computer with a switch between his legs I decided to take a more user friendly approach to solving this problem. I use the same concept of storing commands from the MTH remote and recalling them on demand as before. I have just gotten rid of all the electronic processors etc and basically use the PC itself. I have accomplished this by writing an executable Windows Application program using Visual Basic. The requirements to run your trains from a PC screen requires my program and a USB or RS232 to TTL converter available off the shelf online and telephone connector jacks to plug into the TIU when running and the remote when loading.
