computational train track layouts



Welcome to Turing Trains.

These pages explore the design and construction of train track layouts capable of binary computation. Later layouts explore programmable methods.

Each layout is depicted as a compact grid of square tiles. Most are interactive.

Duplo trains use a hexagonal grid structure. They provide physical working examples that with enough space can be actually built.

If you're new to computational train track layouts, start with the Intro section. The Functions, Layouts and Computer sections show designs of increasing complexity.

The Projects section covers other aspects of train track layout design. The final page looks at the advantages and problems of different mechanical computer designs.
