Good evening,

Ok, DCC has gained a lot of support from users. I'm interested, but would like to know what I would need, what would work with my equipment, and if anything I have now would work.

I have a Digitrax Super Empire setup for my small scale railroad.

Large scale I'm running Bachmann steam engines, 4-6-0's, 2-8-0, and a 2-6-0 Indy Mogul.

I have an Ultima 10 amp power supply that I currently run with the Crest Train Engineer system for my large scale layout.

Questions:

Could the Ultima be used as a power booster with the Digitrax system?

What would be good decoders to use in the Bachmann engines?

Is the setup, i.e. decoder installs difficult in the Bachmann equipment?

Anything else I'm not thinking about currently that anyone can add?

Michael

Michael,
Are you planning on using the Aristo TE for control? Or are you looking at other DCC systems? Are you looking at sound systems -- if so you might look at combination decoders that control both motor and sound. Do you want to control lights and smoke units with DCC? Do you want to control turnouts with DCC?




I wasn't aware the TE could be used for DCC control?? I have a Digitrax Super Empire system for HO; was considering using that on the outside as well...?
