several powerful controllers for model railroads. Their two switch motor controllers are

intelligent block detector called the

http://www.dccspecialties.com/products/powershield_x.htm PSX and

Brett Scott and Denny Whitaker have written JMRI scripts to assist with programming these,
and provided a nice writeup of how to use them. The
writeup also covers how they document their layout, and discusses the pros and cons of
several ways of connecting the Hare and Wabbit.
You can download their scripts from
the JMRI website, and it also available in the sample
scripts directory in the JMRI downloads.
