-This demonstration [[exhibition_stand|cabinet]] contains an oval of track which is divided into 4 sections. Each of these is controlled by a BC3, MERG [[:​kits:​38|Kit 38]]. These are arranged for anticlockwise travel, if on entering a section the section in advance is occupied then the train will be brought to a halt. There are also 4 signals which reflect the status on the section in advance, these are driven by SD2s MERG :kit:36 +

 The traction for this demo is being converted to use 4 x ATC  Kit 45, made into one unit and configured as a four section "​shuffle"​ system. The system detects when a train enters a section and stops the train for a short time until the section in front is clear. ​ The traction for this demo is being converted to use 4 x ATC  Kit 45, made into one unit and configured as a four section "​shuffle"​ system.
