Steam Loco Saves the Day

No, it isn't pronounced WEE-Throttle...  It is W-EYE-Throttle, as in WiFi.  This handy app communicates with JMRI to let you drive your trains from your iPhone or iPod touch.

Model Railroading should be fun...

The other day I finally got around to catching up on some old hobby email groups that I used to frequent a few years ago.  From my eyes, it seems that most people on the model railroad electronics lists these days seem to spend an inordinate amount of time playing with their computers instead of playing with their trains. How many times does someone need to ask how to install USB drivers and/or software updates in order to have fun?  To each his own, I guess.
