Re: Converting from DC to DCC on existing HO scale layout


Hi Charles,

Your layout sounds like it is in pretty good shape.  If you have some stalling, you may have trouble with sound locomotives.  Upon power interruption, your sound locomotives may cut out and the sound will restart.  A stay alive capacitor will probably take care of that.  This will be easier than trying to modify your turnouts and powering the frogs.
