I AM NEW TO DCC, I WANT TO BUILD A DCC ON30 LAYOUT, NEED SOMEONE TO PROVIDE TRACK WIRING DIAGRAM USING NCE EQUIPMENT AND LIST OF NCE EQUIPMENT NEEDED.
THANKS

Well, details - how big a layout or more important, how many trains, oops, how many engines do you expect to run at a  time?  Maybe a beginner system ($160?) could handle up to 5 engines, a basic system ($450-500) perhaps 5-10 locos or many double or triple-headed trains then a system with multiple boosters and breaker panels.   NCE is a good system; throttles offer lots of info on their displays.  My club uses it and we run maybe 20+ engines at a time with many boosters with  breaker panels on each.

We'll try to help.  Could you turn your caps lock off first?

Please answer these questions:
1. Do you have a track plan?
1a. Does your track loop back on itself?  IOW, will a train be able to go on the same track it was on previously without changing direction?
2. How many operators?
3. How many locomotives in use at one time?
4. Do you plan on any sort of signaling, even crossing signals?

Bernard,

Get an NCE PowerCab system. Easiest to use. Ideal for a one operator limited sized layout. You can cope with programming of several locos by fiddling with CV settings 'manually' with the PowerCab. No other frills are needed unless you have an reversing track section needing a PSX-AR auto-reverser.
