About the author:
Herbert A. Shauger, Jr. is a retired electrical design engineer, holding both Bachelor's and Master's degrees in this discipline. His love of toy trains began at the age of 4 when he was given his first Lionel Steam Freight Set, which he still runs today. For the last 25 years, Herbert and his wife Roberta have sold antique electric trains. This hobby ultimately propelled Herbert into a mission to develop a smart controller to automate these wonderful old devices.

Even though Herbert is retired from his full-time engineering position, he is still offering design services as a consultant and would welcome any requests you might have for assistance with your dream project. He can be contacted at:

Antique Lionel Trains on Autopilot

Authored by Herbert Shauger

We have truly entered a world whose very existence relies on the Computer and its offspring, the Microcomputer. There is a computer chip present in almost every device that can be plugged in the wall or is powered by batteries. The sheer abundance of inexpensive Smart Modules available in today's electronics marketplace has made it feasible to design an inexpensive "Smart" Controller that can automatically direct the actions of vintage and antique model trains. The same concepts set forth in this book can be applied to give intelligence to many electronic devices. This book describes the design path leading to the physical realization of an Automated Model Train Controller.
