    Which DCC system would you recommend for an On30 operator (me) running a Broadway Limited C-16 2-8-0 and a Bachmann Climax that has a SoundTraxx DSD-B2TCLC sound and control board installed in it? I have the BLI 2-8-0 and am presently running it in conventional DC mode with a MRC Tech4 200 transformer. Next I would like to buy a Climax and add the Soundtraxx system, but once I do I must run it with DCC. Then the question becomes, which system would work best with both types of engines out on the tracks. Your help with this will be appreciated. Thank you. TC

    Hi TC,

    Check out The Gauge's DCC Forum if you do not get an answer here. There is also a "sticky" thread that contains links to a lot of useful DCC info.

    Pretty much any DCC system will run both of those sound systems. It would be a matter of which one you are comfortable with. Your local hobby shop should be able to help you choose.
