QUOTE (upnick @ 25 Sep 2008, 04:03) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Hi All,

After looking at the points on the layout i would like a way of them switching if a loco is approaching a point set against it ... in an automatic method but still allowing me to use the control panel when i want using a switch.

Can this be taken care of via an infrared device .... or is there another way ?

Any help would be gratefully recieved.

Have a look at Richard's MasterSwitch products which allow for exactly that type of operation. Even some DCC stationary decoders can also perform this function too. Depends if you like having gapped rail sections or whether you prefer LDR style of detection (Light Dependant Resistor - or similar!)
