OSCI Signals
Since OSCI is able to control all signals with JMRI, we have been adding DCC signal controllers to replace the Integrated Signal Inc. signal controllers. The ISS controllers were difficult to wire program for some of out complicated turnout situations. With OSCI-JMRI all the signal logic is built in and extremely easy to program special situations. The entire signal system has now been converted(2015). Along the mainlines, we continue to add additional infra red train detection for improved dispatcher control. Development and installation by Jeff Rowe 2007-2015.

Initials on the right: EM could be Ed Marshall or Eddie Martinez, both were active members at the time. DRJ is most likely Dave Johnson Sr., Davy's dad. M may be a combined ML so my guess is Mike Leahy. Info from Jim Trenkle, 2Nov2015.
