    I have had JMRI for quite awhile now and just tonight I took advantage of that to successfully try to use it for wireless train control for my NCE Powerhouse Pro. I downloaded the free Engine Driver for both my Android phone and my Kindle from enginedriver.mstevetodd.com (also available at Google Play). I have JRMI installed on my Raspberry Pi computer and gave it a shot. Worked exactly as the instructions in Engine Driver said it would, though to get at the Tools/Throttles/Start WiThrottle Server, I had to open PanelPro3, not DecoderPro3. After that it, worked, first time with no hassles! It works equally well on both my phone and my Kindle!

    Easiest setup I have had to do in a long time!

    Thanks to the thread "NCE Power Cab (add on) question ? (non wireless)" in DCC&Electronics forum (http://www.trainboard.com/highball/...ower-cab-add-on-question-non-wireless.111109/) for the kick in the tail I needed to attempt this!

    From stoked to sad. A couple of days after I posted this, my NCE command station can no longer read or write decoders and won't run the layout from JMRI. Shipping it to NCE tomorrow! :(
