Laurie McLean's Coal Tower Brilliant animation using an Octo III.
of Antelope California has built a really nice installation using the
Quad-PICs. It was his request that resulted in the new bi-color fascia
controllers which he has used to nice effect on his N scale railroad.
Sean's control panel is made of acrylic with chart tape to show the tracks.
sean did a nice job of wiring the panel.

A great idea for building a spring in to the servo drive wire.
"I have an idea for your wire on the servo horn.I'll be using Hitec metal gear servos that I all ready have. You can use larger wire from the servo to the switch. I bent the wire around a medium metal handled X-acto knife handle to make a spring, one round is all it takes and the servo doesn't shove hard against the track just hard enough. The wire I used was .032 stainless,and because it's a little stiffer it gives you a few more options for mounting" - David Cecil

Read Craig Bisgeier's blog entry on how he installed servos on his Housatonic Railway to drive his Fast Tracks turnouts.
Ryan of the Model RailCast Show has made a video of how he installed a Tam Valley Depot Quad Servo Decoder on his home layout. Laso hear Duncan talk about his servos on Model Railcast Show #50
