    Hey All, I'm wondering what some of you think or if any of you have tried the Bachmann DCC controller? I'm going to go DCC here soon and was wondering if there is a big difference between this and the others. Thanks Scoobie

    There is a huge difference. Go with the Digitrax zephyer, MRC Prodigy advanced/express, ore i think the new NCE power cab.

    Bachmann's system is designed as an accessory to their decoder equipped standard line as a cheap dcc system that parents might get their kids for their trains. Its an extremely limited system. there are no upgrades. the more expensive systems are definitely the way to go. they are a high initial investment, but are definitely worth it.

    :thumb: Thanks, I am looking at the Zephyr. That seems the best way to go for me. I just needed a little input.
