Re: DCC Circuit Board Setup


It may or may not help, but telling us where you're at might bring a helpful
person or two out of the woodwork. Sometimes a half-hour conversation over
a coffee can resolve, or avoid, hours of headscratching. In general DCC is
best NOT centralized, but there are other design caveats to be aware of.

Take care

Thank you Dale, Max and Doug. Your comments are helpful and appreciated. I
guess this is the problem with wiring and setup. My basic knowledge is
rudimentary to be bordering on worrisome/dangerous and the lack of
confidence re circuitry doesn't help so I looking for specifics. Am
beginning to reluctantly understand that flexibility/variability is perhaps
a feature of the system.

The centralisation concept came from the idea and ease of 'trouble shooting'
etc given that layout is not modular and reasonable large. I must confess,
I get somewhat confused with the manuals and the terminology plus the
various scenarios of intermixing boards - each with their own caveats for
operation. Thankyou for the documentation - I'll go through, try to apply
and progress onwards.
