|Back of machine, showing the code equipment.
The top (smaller) unit is the 502 LC (Line Code),
unit, which transmits and receives the codes.
The bottom (larger) unit is the storage unit, which
stores all the indications displayed on the front,
and also contains the starting and station select
relays to determine which station is coding.
Click here to hear an indication code cycle and bell!
The Bell is not visible - it is to the left behind the storage cabinet.
|The field location for Palmer's Cove is pictured above. While the machine only has
two control stations - it requires two additional indication stations for all of the
track indications. There is one field LCS (Line-Code-Storage) unit (the larger unit)
on the shelf, which is station 245. The three smaller units are "pups" which add more
stations to the field LCS - they are stations 246, 247, and 248.
There is also a local control panel (Harmon) and all the application relays are
on the panel full of icecube relays - two Basic Stamps simulate train movements.
