I intend to buy this train set for my daughter. Apparently, the locomotive can communicate with an app via a bluetooth connection.

My question is: is there any documentation available so that I can make my own app to communicate with these trains? Preferably, I'd want to connect with multiple trains at the same time. Then it'll be fun for her to play with the set and fun for me to program for them :-)
