Am pushing myself to the limits here. OK so I converted to DCC early this year, put decoders into my engines and away we go. Now am working with Hornby Elite which would probably not be a everyone's first choice of control equipment, However downloaded the firmware and hooked up to a computer and again no problems. I have got computer throttle control.
Now fired with enthusiasm and maybe beginners success am looking at block detection. Having trawled the web am now not sure what I really want. I THINK I need contact sensors on the track and a feedback module to pass the data back to the computer. I think Lenz produce what am looking for but can anybody tell me exactly what I need and who supplies such things.

Thanks for replies. Have been snow bound and done very little of late hence delay in acknowledging the wealth of information. It does seem as if my original thoughts on a Lenz solution maybe problematical. Will have a look at Digitrax.
En passant what can anyone tell me about this new Sapphire decoder and what data,if any it can send back. I gather its not out until the new year.
