PICAXE Model Railroad Speed Controller
The new PICAXE 18M2 chip inspired me to write this article and assemble the parts for the kit that accompanies it.
The completed kit is a full-featured model railroad speed controller with many innovate and interesting features and capabilities.
If you are not into model railroading I am sure that you will discover that the controller can be used for any number of other control projects as well due to its flexibility and the fact that the controller is completely solid state and will work with any 3 volt to 35 volt DC motor.
Stay tuned for the companion article that turns the unit into a model train activity recorder.
