Re: Expanding from a Digitrax Zephyr system to a Super Empire Builder system

appreciate "experienced" advice. Can I connect the DT400R throttle via
loconet (not in simplex radio mode) and use that for programming instead of
switching the DCS50 back to command station mode? If not, switching the
DCS50 back to programming mode in the rare occasion that I need to program
doesn't seem like a big deal.

The DCS50 can be optioned to separate the throttle and booster
functions (and disable the command station) so your DB150 can be
used as the command station. The DCS50 manyual describes how to do
The DB150 can feed your PM42 and the DCS50 can feed yet another
power district for a total of five.
Keep in mind that the DB150, when use as a command station CANNOT
read back CVs, so you may want to keep the DCS50 so you can switch
it back to command station mode for programming.

new power districts? I will subdivide my expansion into 4 powerexpanding
my layout I think I would prefer to switch to the DB150 as myI
probably will never exceed the 10 max addresses of the ZephyrDCS150
so I want to do whatever is easiest. Your advice is greatly
