I'm about to purchase a DCC system for my layout. One of my requirements is to have the ability to interface a PC to the system so that I'll be able to automate various things (running trains, setting signals....who knows). I checked out the Digitrax site and all I see is that MS100 (LocoNet to RS-232 level shifter) product along with a few outdated references to Windows 3.1 (!) and other such OS's
Is anyone out there actually using a PC running Windows XP or Linux to talk to your Digitrax system? Are you using basic Loconet driver support or are you using a more complete package such as those from Railroad & Co.?
