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

Don Vollrath

Charles, you have good start for a DC to DCC conversion. Code 83 Atlas turnouts do generally have a dead frog with sometimes marginal point rail connections. Barely noticeable unless you run DC trains at slower speeds. But putting in a keep-alive to each loco like as you convert to DCC will easily overcome those issues without making any changes to the turnouts and allow you to run DCC trains at realistic speeds.
Have fun!
