Rick Allen’s Railroad with Berrett Hill Touch Toggles, Digitrax DS64 and Train Buddy custom designed electronics for massive staging

Ok, so I don’t expect every railroad to use this technique to run their staging yard, this railroad is SO big and expects to have SO many locos on the track at the same time that it makes sense to power down those sidings that are not in service. The alternatives to this include separate relays to power down each siding. You could do this without the assistance of a smart stationary decoder like the DS64’s but you would still need to push at least two buttons in order to power down the other sidings and power up the one you needed. While we (there are many buddies working on this railroad) are closer to finishing this monumental railroad, things have changed, even from this video. More to come, enjoy.
