Welcome to the Home of A-TRACK Your DCC Buddy !

-         Engineered by Terry Chamberlain

    Latest Version 4.3.2 Now Available - see the Get A-TRACK page for details of all features

Originally designed as a complete Model Railroad control solution designed for ease of use, fully-compliant with the National Model Railroad Association's Digital Command Control standards, and based around an Atari XL/XE Classic computer plus custom hardware, A-TRACK has now developed into a fully-featured software application running on a standard Windows PC, under Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10 and interfacing to any NCE Power Cab or Power Pro DCC System.
NOTE: If your PC has recently been updated to Windows 10 via a Microsoft download, and you find that A-Track no longer runs, please see the link on the Get A-TRACK page.

The A-TRACK system has been designed and built to meet the requirements of model railroaders (rather than computer experts) with the programming and tuning of their DCC-based layouts and rolling stock, and to preserve and protect all of the effort that they have put into setting up their equipment. A full installation, through several iterations, has been in successful operation at the Cochise & Western Model Railroad Club in Sierra Vista, Arizona for over 10 years.

The latest, complete version of A-TRACK, together with a comprehensive User Guide and full supporting documentation, is available to download FREE for personal or club use. Further details, and instructions on how to obtain a fully-functional version of A-TRACK, can be found on the Get A-TRACK page.  

Also featured in the Projects & DCC section is an automatic railroad crossing controller (ARCC) plus a DCC Decoder Tester.

The Links page contains links to sites that are related to the featured projects, to suppliers of software and hardware, and to sources of information that I have found useful. Please let me know if you find that any of these links no longer work - or if you feel that significant links are missing.

The intention is, as projects evolve and new developments are completed, that the information in these pages will be expanded. I hope you find something useful or interesting here.
