[NTLK] Serial-Out for Trains?

We must first see who is doing today around the train circuits, I am sure there must be many projects based on Arduino or Raspberry. Since the eMate, or other Newtons can communicate with a serial port, it would be nice to see which projects use this interface. For the software you have to see what the interface needs, on the circuit side, before you know if it is easily achievable...

Keep us informed of your research, as Bernie says, this kind of project is very nice :-)

Can anyone recommend a way to use the serial port (or anything else) to send a signal from the eMate to something outbound? Of course there is also the software side of things...
