Customer Comments:

“That is some sweet software, aka eTrain. He has accessed the full command set as well as the extended address range. Anyone who is looking for a way to run TMCC without the CAB-1 should look at this very hard. It should actually be able to run the trains better than the CAB-1. ”

“I have lookedat eTrain Command Console. He increased the address space beyond the CAB-1 capability, partially at my request, for fully utilizing my SwitchMaster switch controller. His software is very inexpensive considering the amount of work involved.”

“I have to tip my hat to you on eTrain. I have beenrunning non-decoder equipped locosand one proto-sounds 2 loco! I especially like the keystroke savings when creating lash-ups, routes, etc. These are the reasons why I purchased the program.”

“I love your program. I created a simple VB and C# app myself, but not with such elaborate features! I am impressed. I know how much time it takes.”

After you purchase eTrain Command Console and payment has been received and cleared you will receive a zipped file via the email address you provide. If you do not have the ability to unzip a zipped file the individual files can be sent instead. However, some internet service providers will filter out some of these files. If this is the case, I will work with you until we can find a way for you to receive all of the required files. The zipped file will contain the following files:

eTrain Command Console.exe – The main application executable.

Device.mdb – The database that will contain all devices you want to control on your layout.

arrow forward.bmp – A bitmap containing the forward arrow image for the Direction button.

arrow reverse.bmp - A bitmap containing the reverse arrow image for the Direction button.

arrow increase.bmp – A bitmap containing the up arrow image for the Increase Throttle button.

arrow decrease.bmp – A bitmap containing the down arrow image for the Decrease Throttle button.

eTrain Command Console Users Guide.htm – An HTML version of the User’s Guide.

eTrain Command Console Users Guide_files – A folder containing the images that appear in the User’s Guide.

  1. Serial Cable: With your computer and TMCC® base unit powered off, take your Serial cable and connect the female end to the Serial port of your computer and connect the male end to your TMCC® base unit. Hook up your TMCC® as you normally would by connecting the U terminal on the base unit to the common rail of your layout. Then power on your TMCC® base unit and computer.

USB to DB9 Serial Adapter: Please follow the instruction that came with your USB to DB9 Serial adapter.

  1. Create a folder on your hard drive where you want eTrain Command Console to reside. Name it anything you want.

  1. Unzip the zipped file into that folder. If you elected to receive the individual files instead of the zipped file, move those files into your newly created folder.

  1. At this point all you need to do is double click the eTrain Command Console.exe file to start the application. If you wish you can add a shortcut to this file on your Desktop, Quick Launch Bar or your Programs list for easier access.
