Re: Digital control for Marklin and Roco

It's been more years than I care to remember, but IIRC, Marklin track does not insulate the two running rails. If they were, there would be reverse loop and catenary power configuration issues (which rail is the return?)

Probably not. Never seen either one, but I would expect the 3-rail system to have non-insulated wheelsets, which would short out the 2-rail electrical system.

Pure newbie question about dcc.

Can both Marklin 3 rail and Roco 2 rail motors be run at the same time on the same track system by use of any dcc control system?
