In this talk i will give an introduction into digital model railway control systems and their hacking and making opportunities.

"modern" model railway control systems are digital - since 1979. Several standards evolved out of that. As this is today one of the older used standards there are plently of hacking and making opportunities in there.
I realized that a lot of the people in our scene have model railroads somewhere on the attic at home which in my opinion are worth being found, brought to the hackerspace, modded and played around with.
