Got talking to a guy at a model train show today.  Asked about how he went about making sure all his polarities were safe.  I'd have the whole thing going up in smoke.  affraid

Spoke briefly about how DCC works but I'm gonna need a lot more thinking on this one before I get the idea Crazy Eyes
Bob, I guess if you're using old style rolling-stock it's all just 12V DC control?  I was amazed to see that he could control trains on the same line separately. (I know, I'm well behind the times) Embarassed

DCC (Digital Command Control or to some Digital Command and Control) is pretty wonderful Rod and if I ever go to it, I will not have to change the wiring of my model railroad.  

Not cheap, basic systems go for less than $200, but you have to add decoders to each engine and that runs around $20 per locomotive.  Not bad when you have a couple of engines, but a hundred or so and you get into serious money.  If you want engine sounds, bells, whistles, chuff chuff and choo choo reach deep.  I'm not that much of a fan...…...yet.

Got it to the point where I can run three engines at the same time.  Ran two over the systems without a head-on.  Smile

Knocked together another display.  Last one, ran out of wall space.  It does make it easier just to pull off an engine that you want to run from the display rather than searching through a bunch of boxes or drawers.

Believe it or not, one of those engines has a DCC decoder stuffed in the tender.  I have forgotten which one.   Huh... Tiny little circuit board.
