Hi All, My lurker status continues, but now that I have moved into a new house in Mississauga, the reality of my first layout is an ever increasing possibility. I have approximately a 15' stretch of wall that I can run a shelf layout along, with room for a dog-bone style turns at the end. It means that if I am going to do Digital Command and control, I'd better get serious, and maybe even take advantage of Boxing Day/Week sales... I've been eyeing the Prodigy Advance for some time... Although more recently the Prodigy Express has caught my eye... if only for the price tag. I read the MR article on DCC systems and my only concern is the 1.6 Amp output. All the other bells and whistles can be later upgraded, as I have found out. Does anyone have experience with this model, or any suggestions on what to look for. I currently own 7 locomotives that I plan to run on this layout, usually in consists of 2... I am planning on acquiring 3 more locos reasonably soon... but I will have to do the DCC upgrades in all of them before getting up to operational snuff. Also, I only plan on having 1 operator at the time for the moment, but it would be nice to have one train in motion whilst switching is available. Anyway, questions questions... anyone have suggestions?
