I want to sit back & watch my railroad run. Can you do that with Digitrax?
The Digitrax Command Control System is designed for prototypical operation. The objective is to provide realistic operation so that the models run like the real thing. To do this you need an engineer in control of each locomotive. The starter sets are not designed for automated train control when used by themselves.
To set up automated operation, you can set up the layout with detection and or transponding and use a computer to handle the automated operations.
