Shuttle Track with CS2

How to make a shuttle track in combination with the CS2

At the backside of the Rosenbahn there is a small shuttle track located. This track is just above the ramp where trains goes up and down to the lower station section where a big train station area is located. At one side the track ends into the mountain and the other side it end on a station. It is just a simple straight line which makes it perfect for a track like this.

This description of the shuttle track is upon request of one of our followers of the Rosenbahn website.

There are 3 blocks arranged in the rails of the this track, a start block, a center block and a terminal block which ends into the station. All three blocks are connected to a S88 / Viesmann 5217 feedback decoder (picture 6) and this decoder is reconnected to the Märklin Central Station 2.

Next step is to select a locomotive in the CS2 which will be added to the shuttle track. Open the locomotive configuration, and point to the icon in the left for the commuter train (picture 1). A new field will opens automatically and this is the screen which associated with the feedback decoder S88 / Viesmann 5217 (picture 6) and make the set up for the maximum speed and waiting time (picture 2). Confirm this with the green V checkmark in the right corner below. Now opens the main screen with the speedo meter in the CS2 and you will discover the icon for the commuter train at the right side below the speedometer beside the icon of the spanner (picture 3 & 4). If you point the icon you will see a small green circle will show up. The locomotive is now immediately active for the shuttle track and only for this. When you point again on that icon you will see that the green circle will disappears (picture 5), the locomotive is still entered as shuttle train (not active), but can now be used universally at your track. When the locomotive again needs to be served for commuter train the only thing is activate it by clicking on the icon and the green circle will appear again. Thus in principle it is a very simple system. The most important is to make the block in a way that the train will stop at the desired points of the track. The shuttle track is now active (picture 7).

Have fun.

(Note):There are many other brands feedback decoders available with the same function as the two mentioned decoders.
