Im looking for a way to simply start and or stop an Annie without it slamming to a stop or spinning to a start electronically.  I thought of the bitswitch option but Im not investing in dcc.  Is there anyone that has invented a solidstate throttle that can be simply triggered like the bitswitch for simple analog operation.  I have a simple analog loop of 100 ft on a shelf system and would like to keep it automated, a few starts and stops ect.  I have heard of a  few designs that use big capcitors ect.. but why not a solidstate reostat like the radio controlled throttle on my rc dirt buggy? Help.....

Check and see it you care for any of these Automatic Operations Circuits at http://home.cogeco.ca/~rpaisley4/CircuitIndex.html#Automatic
I have not looked to see if the circuits are robust enough for your needs but the author’s email is at bottom of the webpage.

Also just one of several commercially available systems

Wow I would purchase the automated start and stop device from peerless ind. if it were for g scale..  I could never build the other device, sounds like it could be a rather clunky stop, kinda crude.  I see the impute is 12volts on the peerless device I guess the kicker would be the limited output for an A scale application.

Look again,
Peerless
Item (part #)
564-550 Automatic Train Stop Control
and
564-555 Automatic Intermediate Train Stop 

Are for use with
564-542 Automatic Reversing Unit -- G Scale 

However, Peerless may not do what you want.



Another possibility (different company)--- Contact and discuss with the folks at Dallee Electronics what you want to do.

You might take a look at the "One Step Critter Control" http://gold.mylargescale.com/DelTapparo/Electronics.htm

The one step critter control sounds great, just what I need to do.  Problem is I am not running battery power.  Just a simple track powered loop.  I have not talked with the folks from Dallee Electronics yet.  Took a look at the website,  a bit confusing,  might need several devices woking together to do such a simple task.  I also have not received an email back from Walthers about the "intermintant start and stop device" they sell.  Ill keep trying, cant imagine what it would take to run two locos on one track {automated}. ferget aboout it.

Try the VCS realroad Whistlestop II, this is an automated system that works in analog mode.  It will run two trains on the same track and will let a train come to a soft stop and then proceed ut to speed slowly.
Their e-mail address is :  www.realroad.com

The VCS realroad Whistlestop II would be just the thing im looking for if it worked as you describe... As far as I know  VCS realroad discontinued all of their  products as of 2006.
