I don't know if chicken or the egg, but all the other friend's layouts are also NCE vast most are club members.
there are a lot of youtube videos on DCC systems and where and how to start. Digitrax or NCE seem to be the decision to make.
This brings up a good point. If there is a local club that you might join, ask what system they are using and then seriously consider that system. That way, when (not IF) you need help, there are some modelers locally that can give you a hand.
