* This Video #826 shows TWO MTH 3-Rail O ga. Proto 3 Diesels -- automatically running on a small circle of MTH Realtrax -- with the option of using a pushbutton to allow the PUBLIC to manually start the trains.
* An NCE DCC Mini Panel is used to do the automatic control.

* A single PUSHBUTTON that the PUBLIC can push, causes both locos to perform a SEQUENCE of making 1 trip around the layout, and then "parking" where they started.
* The locos will idle until the pushbutton is again pushed, then repeat the sequence.

* An infrared Z-Stuff block signal detector is used, to detect the position of the trains.

* Alternately, the operator can close a switch, to cause the trains to run continuously.

* Note that NCE strongly recommends NOT using the Power Cab for O gauge -- but it seems to work for these demonstrations involving very low speeds and pulling only 1 car.
