Re: bacmann ez track and dcc
I do not know if you can afford this, but I have used this with Atlas switches just fine.
This product is DCC only and it will only do switch number sequentially, meaning 1-8, 2-9, etc...
Also, it's per switch price is quite low.
It is made in Europe, but available in the US on Ebay here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/DIGIKEIJS-DR4018-16-CHANNEL-SWITCH-DECODER-WORKS-WITH-ALL-DCC-BRANDS/252438372898?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
