    When you place a question into an existing thread, it can be confusing. This is the original thread -

    Several questions come to mind, but let's start with the most important - Is this for a model railroad or full size?

    What are your specifications for the project?

    What gates do you want to control? When they have to open/close?

    What are the information the system has to look as to change automatically the rail tracks?

    What is your knowledge on electronics?
