Things you should know using ESP8266 WiFi module for its safety and easiness as it's very delicate module to use.

The Arduino is simple, cheap and power efficient but has limitations. Sometimes, you may want to have more than one access your I2C bus.

Devices will be less .. Buy more equipment ... "Open" standard ... Use a large computer ... Study instruction A to do B, but take note of addition C ...
Have you tried to collect this circus yourself? Maybe you should think about this?
Well, or read the introduction to my posts?
Or see the picture to my last post?
Be curious, you really know little about the subject. Good luck!
Hello Chaz! Unfortunately, the technology DDC has a fundamental limitation - the lack of feedback, so DDC automation is a very bad idea. In addition, it is old, expensive, complex and, one more drawback, closed for modelers. I know about projects Open DDC и DDC++ , they have the same problems. To place an Arduino in a locomotive is an absolutely stupid idea, it is very large for models starting with a HO scale. And more batteries, electronics for the motor... Do you know what Occam's razor is?
Again, the project presented on the site is easily reprogrammed by the open convenient environment Arduino IDE. It is assembled from widely available elements and is even accessible to the schoolboy. On its basis, you can invent and immediately implement anything you like, use the phone as a convenient and always available controller. Update your railway as updated firmware in modern gadgets.
And it's much more fun than motion dozens of trains in the circle raillines from an expensive and sophisticated DDC console.
I believe that there are many solutions. You are a fan of DDC, and that's excellent. Only now I have a question for you, can you do interlocking traffic? Or the automatic crossing yards for two trains on DDC?
I certainly have another one a complicated project with Wi-Fi and scripting management both in computer rail simulators with independent intellectual trains traffic, but I'm not going to show it to you for sure. Since you yourself all know :)
And even this simple project is not for you, you are a clear professional.
