Wow that’s a good friend indeed, Russell! As I understand it there are also devices that allow you to control the DCC features on a DC layout, some thing you could consider adding on Randy. Just having a couple of locos with sound on the layout would make quite a difference.

Something to remember if you are staying with DC: DCC dual mode decoders also work in DC and vastly improve the operating qualities. Here is a video of my only On30 DCC loco running in DC, the last few seconds is a demonstration of crawling from tie to tie.
It runs flawlessly slow and smoothly like I have only seen in HO DC locos with precision motors and carefully built drive trains. Difficult operating qualities is why I didn’t stay with HO and HOn3 in my experiments in the ‘80’s
Since this time a good friend gave me an entire Digitrax DCC system, just have to figure out what to do with it, I don’t really like its panel of 100 buttons...
Solemnity and profundity are sublime in inequity.
