Re: Buying DCC system
For your stated needs, you will want to step up to the top tier systems liketoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
the Digitrax Super Chief, the NCE Power Cab or the Lenz set 100 ( I think)
These are all fully featured units.
I use the Super Chief and am happy with it generally. I have run out of
capacity on it as my layout grew larger. I ran out of accessory address
space is the only thing that bothers me about it. But in reality, none of
the others would have a large enough address space either.
The best part about the top tier systems is that all you need as your layout
grows are power boosters.

Subject: [WiringForDCC] Buying DCC system
Hello everyone, I have not purchased a DCC system yet, but have researched
the various systems. They claim to be able to do this or that, but I would
like to hear from actual users. What I'm hoping for is a system to control
everything from the throttle, (turnouts, lights, crossing guards, 7-8
engines + more later) basically everything on a layout. I would also like a
system that allows for expansion. Right now I'm the only operator but I
would also like the capability of 2 or more operators. I would love to hear
from anyone and their experience with the system they use, good or bad. Is a
starter set the best way to begin? I would like it to be somewhat user
friendly, but I'm sure if I need help this group will easily get me through
any problems. Thanks for any input.
