    Firstly thanks for letting me join. My question is, I have a DCC++ setup from an Arduino UNO, Deek power shield and Raspberry PI. When I power it on track power is not on by default. I have to go into Panel Pro and switch power on. Is there anyway to have track power on as default. The reason im asking that im using it for a small boxfile layout for my grandson so i want him to be able to just power up, connect EngineDriver on his phone and go.

    Thanks in advance.

    In JMRI go to Edit>Preferences>Startup and add a Perform Action>Power Button, then Save

    Next time you open JMRI it should power on your DCC++

    If you are using engine driver you should also be able to turn on the track power from the phone. Should be able to add the power button in preferences in Engine Driver.
