    not allowed to enter the occupied track against the current of traffic because that would result in a head on collision Track Circuits The system uses the rails for communication between the signals Electrical pulses are sent in the rails to form a coded track circuit The pulses are sent in both directions once every second Fourteen different coded values are possible creating a digital communications link between signals A continuous series of pulses is required before the system assumes that the track is vacant The presence of an axle across the rails interrupts the communication between signals This interruption is interpretted as an occupied section of track The current of traffic can only be changed to the opposition direction if the section of track if completely vacant Changing the current of traffic requires a negotiation between the two endpoints of a bidirectional section of track Naturally this communication can only occur through the rails if the entire segment is vacant Control Points CP Control Points are locations that are involved in the negotiation of the current of traffic These locations have signals that allow or hold trains to from a bidirectional section of track Examples include queuing track locations such as Farmersville wyes and stopping sidings such as Witcombe Wye and meet tracks such as Coyote These locations contain a proprietary circuit board containing 32 inputs and 32 outputs and a 8051 family of microprocessor The boards operate from a 6v 5Ah lead acid batery that is charged by a solar cell These boards also contain an XBee radio module operating in the 900MHz range for communication back to the Central Station computer Currently there are three types of control points implemented Intermediate Signals Intermediate Signals are found between control points These signals act as repeaters in the negotiation

    track is vacant Red indicates that the track is occupied by a train The line ahead of a train is shown in green to indicate that the train has been authorized to proceed The colored circles with white lines extending from them represent signals that can be controlled by the dispatcher The modelboard signals are only displayed as red or green which is an indication of whether the train is allowed to pass the signal or not The actual color displayed to the train s engineer is not depicted The above example shows that the signal at Farmersville is allowing a train to proceed The track from Farmersville to Witcombe is displayed as green indicating that a train has been cleared to proceed over that route The track from Coyote to Cooper does not yet have the signal circuitry installed yet so it defaults to occupied track and is displayed in red Signals at controlled points such as meet sidings wyes and queuing tracks are given even numbers based on prototypical practices Odd numbers would be used for motorized turnouts if there were any The L and R suffixes on the signal numbers are for Left and Right indicating which
