WifiTrax Loco Operator App

  • Drive one or two locomotives from the Drive page. You can view the real scale speed for each, which comes from the back-emf of the motor. The windscreen view is just for effect - we don't have video from the locomotive (YET!)
  • Manage the locomotives on your railroad Wi-Fi network, including adding new ones or removing them
  • Organize two or more locomotives into Consists. Tune the individual locos in the consist. Consists appear for selection on the Drive page just like a single locomotive.
  • View telemetry from your locomotive and tune its control parameters. Often the loco will run fine on the default factory settings but you can often improve. Also you will want to give each locomotive a name.
  • Adjust the settings such as the network information, miles/kilometers, etc.

Operating System Requirements

Android 4.4 and above, on Android Phone or Tablet.

Windows 10 on Desktop, Laptop, Tablet such as Microsoft Surface or similar, Microsoft Windows 10 Phone

There are many versions of Android and we can't test them all, so it's a good idea to download and try the App before you buy one of our modules!

We don't yet support IOS, but we probably will fairly soon.
