Building a Z-scale model railway controller with Arduino

 Technology and model railway enthusiast Edouard Lafargue is currently documenting his efforts of controlling a Z-scale model railway layout using a contemporary HTML5 and javascript software front-end and the hardware interfaced with an Arduino board. Starting with explanations of motor control and PWM, Edouard continues with points control and will follow with the software side of the project over time. 

If you're interested in model railways and using technology, Edouard's series is a must-read. And  for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well. 

If you're new to Arduino and want to join the fun, the first step is a solid board for your projects - our Freetronics Eleven - the Arduino-Uno compatible with low-profile USB socket, onboard prototyping space and easy to view LEDs:
