KCS 3rd Subdivision

  A joint project of Steve Davis, Tom Vanden Bosch, and the Tuesday Night Gandy Dancers.

Dispatcher CTC Screen (based on prototype Digicon system).

Below is a video showing the dispatching system we use on the KCS 3rd sub, as it is used on the "CRANDIC", the model RR for which it was originally written.  The first 5 minutes is mostly history of the development, the second part shows actual dispatching including radio communications between dispatcher and train crews with shots of the DS screen and the trains moving.  The video is a bit old (shot in 2004) so the resolution isn't great, but the content is really good and I recommend it to anyone who wants to operate on, or dispatch, a model RR using CTC.
