I want it to be completely open hardware and software. I guess it might be easiest to copy the Märklin low-level protocol, so that I could start with non-free locos, and upgrade them later one by one. :-) It looks like there already is an active community, even in Sweden: <http://www.marklin-users.net/>. But like I said, this is a long-term project, maybe in 5 years when my sons will understand something about programming. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
