  • Hi GeorgeRB


    sorry I thought you understood the basics. you have to build your track layout . you need to go into "Edit" then select "control desk editor" from the drop down menu. In there you will see a grid with rows and columns each square represents a section of track and then start adding track or switches to you grid that would represent your layout. Once you have it build then you need to assign to your track .. a good way to do it is for starters is make a simple layout dont worry if your grid is too small you can add rows and columns.




    let me know how you get on .. with that first and we can take it further

  • I appreciate your time and help.


    I have built a small layout and linked the control panel elements to the track. I have saved it.


    I followed you route via structures and clicked on load a control panel but I alway find that I have a pre set layout on a pedestal which is very small.


    I do not see my panel anywhere.

  • The layout on the pedestal ist only decoration (and doesn't change)


    Shift-click the pedestal to replace the radar-window with your desk layout.

    Alternatively, you may click the GBS #1 tag in your radar-window.



    Please ensure, that you're in drive mode when doing so. You can't do it in 3D build mode

  • And also the pedestal can be hidden inside a building it's purpose is just to click and load your GBS layout.


    Lets us know if you need anymore information it can be a bit awkward at first. I have found that if you want a GBS layout more planning is required in setting up your normal track layout.

  • Hi GeorgeRB


    You may find the text about the control desk editor in the manual of EEP

    In EEP 15 it is chapter 7 of the manual and in EEP 16 it is chapter 8 of the manual.

  • Thanks for all the above help.


    I have a working control panel


    BUT


    It shows when a section is occupied by a train but does not show the switch settings as in a sample layout. As the train moves, so do the track circuits lights so I can see where it is. I can clcik on a switch to change it but there are not lights on the control panel switch to show which was the switch is set.


    Am I doing something wrong?


    George

  • Hello George,


    does the switch really work wenn clicking on the control panel? Perhaps you only connected the tracks with the control panel but not connected the switch itself?

  • It has been a long time since I starfted this but I am still having problems.

    I can design and l;ink points to a control panel and the points switch whenever I click on the control panel.

    The problem is, there are no yellow indicators to identify the point setting.
