Re: G Gauge DCC How hard is it to convert?


Many of the Large Scale / Garden layouts I have been to are R/C & battery.
Check large scale / garden railroad magazine for ads of manufacturers.

Cleanliness of the rails is less important for large scale. Equipment is
heavier; in addition most of the power is picked up via a sliding shoe
rather than wheels rolling over dirt spots.

Most garden railroaders clamp, bolt, or solder jumpers at rail joints, thus
insuring good conductivity.

It's not the wiring that's rough, it's keeping the track clean enough for
reliable operation.

Look at the radio controls + battery powered locomotives.
