Is the Commodore 64 just for playing games?

 Let's be honest, most of us just use our Commodore 64 for playing games right? Maybe you a 1337 coder and create your own games? How about using your C64 to drive a train? Well.. not a real train, maybe something a bit smaller. Fuzzweed over on Twitter has done just that! With a bit of tinkering, code and some wires, he has a train set linked up to a Commodore 64C which he uses to control Fuzzweed Station, amazing stuff, and I'm sure there's a lot more to it than just plug and play. Check out Fuzzweed's Twitter and tap into the comments. I'm sure he will be more than happy to explain it in more detail.

If you're into trains and the Commodore 64 there's also a few tapes you could hunt down and try out. C64 Train tapes photo src: Mark Hellewell. Here's some links to the games in Mark's photo. Cornish Riviera, Lickey Route and R.T.V Penzance.
