Ok, so I'm big into operations and dispatching. I've been the Supt of operations and Chief Dispatcher at the club for over 20 years. I've used every method from string boards to my own computer diagrams to metal boards and magnets with radios or train orders and runners.
The only thing I have not used is a REAL CTC panel.
I'm slow. I have to learn everything the hard way because my ADD makes it impossible to read.
I have found many videos on Youtube as well as other modelrailroad sites but they only show the dispatching, not the hows and whys of certain levers etc.
I understand dispatching, I just don't understand things like the pull knobs at the bottom of the machine that seem to be used to clear all signals up to a certain point.
Anyone have any links to "operating a CTC board for dummies" ?
