TrainTraxx allows the Model Railroader to automate train operations by using RFID technology. RFID readers and NFC tags are used to identify locations of layout railcars in the various cities, sidings, and industries.
TrainTraxx will provide a TraxxID starter kit, coupled Traxx operation software that will allow the Model Railroader to get started in a BIG way– running train operations on a model railroad layout. Future releases will include support for the JMRI Operations application.
If you can install track on your layout, you can install Traxx ID. It is very simple and comes with a step-by-step manual for installation and instructions on all of the pre-configured components.
