i.e. it was already shoved in the corner then because
the institute had moved on to air traffic control

In Germnay starting in the 80ties you could buy a lot of
modular digital control stuff for modelrailroads from
Märklin and Fleischmann and probably some others

Magazines like Elektor or ELV probably had project
in that direction as well. I will have to look this up.

I also recall reading about a system that allowed you to use your computer to control your model railroad in a Märklin catalogue - this must've been in the early 90s. I'm not a model railroad fan myself anymore, but if somebody else still has those catalogues or can find them on eBay, it might be worth looking into.
