Where’s the old openlcb.org website?

You may have noticed a number of changes to the OpenLCB website over the last few days. We decided a while ago to migrate away from the old static openlcb.org website and replace it with a newer WordPress based website, which we’ve been working on for a few months. Now all three OpenLCB domains (openlcb.org, openlcb.com & openlcb.info) all point to the one WordPress website. However the old OpenLCB website still exists on SourceForge and can be found here: http://old.openlcb.org and there’s also a “Old Website” main menu item to get you there easily.

The SourceForge Project still exists here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/openlcb but we are also slowly moving parts of the OpenLCB SubVersion repository over to new project repositories on GitHub

LCC Standards and Technical Notes Adopted by NMRA BoD

The OpenLCB Group are pleased to announce the LCC Standards and Technical Notes (Download ZIP file) have been Adopted by the NMRA BoD at their February 2016 meeting. This represents the first complete and coherent set of standards and technical notes to enable manufacturers to develop LCC products.

This is the culmination of many (hundreds) hours of work from the core members of The OpenLCB Group and many other volunteers proof reading, checking technical details, providing feedback and prototyping designs to prove the protocols work as intended, in the real (model) world. Many thanks to all those who contributed.

These and other LCC documents are available on the Layout Command Control (LCC) page or via direct links to each section:
