Computer-Controlled Model Railroad Raises and Lowers from Within Coffee Table | #modeltrain #modelrailroad #cprail

Christopher Plumley’s model railroad is not only impressive for the electronics and control systems in the model itself (from the trolley to the drive-in theater screen), but the whole thing is contained inside a coffee table and designed to raise and lower from within the coffee table! There are multiple cameras throughout the model as well, giving the omniscient controller views from within the model, from the engineer’s view to cameras in tunnels (hey who put up that graffiti on coroplast?!) to imagined driver’s seat perspectives. The whole thing is controlled from a Toshiba Windows 10 touchscreen tablet PC running CTI aka “Train-Brain.” Awesome!

  1. How did you get the video feed from the cab of the locomotive in real time?
