My article "Instrumentation Education Through Model Railroading" was just 
published in IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Magazine (Vol. 9, No. 5, 
October 2006).  I discuss the use of Ada in my real-time embedded systems 
laboratory.  I was particularly pleased when the reviewers asked that I add 
more information on Ada's suitability for embedded systems than I had in my 
original submission.
