Figure 3a

The Item 2 videotape set, Video Textbook for G Scale Automatic Display Ideas (V9202) exhaustively demonstrates several ways to automatically control multiple G scale trains on the same track using very simple non-electronic controls.

* Tape 1 -- Introduction & Automatic Block Part 1:

* Tape 2 -- Automatic Block Part 2

Please be advised -- this is an amateur videotape -- not a professional production. Some parts you may find boring and repetitious. However, to my knowledge, this is the first and only how-to-do-it video on simplified automatic train control. You will see train control demonstrations that are just not available anywhere else.

2. Advanced Videotapes 3, 4, 5, & 6

Item 3 -- Additional Videotapes 3, 4, 5, and 6
