-The shuttle module or ATC (Automatic Train Controller) comes preprogrammed with a number of different configurations,​ selectable using an on board 4 way DIL switch. The track on this [[exhibition_stand|demonstration]] board is a symetrical arrangement that allows all of these configurations and the module cycles through these.\\ The track is Kato Unitrack, the points have integral motors using a two wire arrangement where the direction of current flow determines direction in which the points are set. The points here are driven by PD3s, MERG Kits 37a & 37b.+The shuttle module or ATC (Automatic Train Controller) ​MERG Kit 46, comes preprogrammed with a number of different configurations,​ selectable using an on board 4 way DIL switch.

 The ATC module has two track outputs designated '​End'​ and '​Intermediate'​. For a simple end to end no other modules are needed, the two end sections are isolated in both rails and the '​End'​ output connected to these, the '​Intermediate'​ output is connected to the remainder of the track, observing correct polarity throughout.\\ The ATC module has two track outputs designated '​End'​ and '​Intermediate'​.

-For any configuration with more than 2 ends, some switching is required, this is achieved using the CSR4 (Cab Select Relay x 4) module. This has 8 relays arranged in pairs providing a means of switching either of the ATC outputs or none (off) to each of 4 supplementary outputs. This gives provision for 4 stopping places or ends which may be at any one time off, end or intermediate.+For any configuration with more than 2 ends, some switching is required, this is achieved using the CSR4 (Cab Select Relay x 4) module, MERG Kit 46.
