Hi Gérald,

looks like a device driver problem.
Maybe you should check for newer releases:

Hi Gérald,

I had a simular problem in March this year on an exhibition...

Finally I solved the problem: There where 240VAC transformers to near by the connection cable between the MacBook and the Command Station...
It was very stressing because it did not happen at once but after a random time running the trains very well.
I also had to reboot the Mac to regain a new connection.

Electricians told me it can not be that those transformers cause trouble to the communication, but they where wrong. Maybe real RS232 connections won't suffer this problem but USB-RS232 seems to be very sensitive.
