  1. DCC Forum (Digital Command Control)
    Hello, I recently finished my first ever layout. Everything was working great until my DCC loco suddenly stopped on the tracks while it was moving. The reverse light on the loco remains lit whenever the train is on a live track, no matter if the controller is set to forward, reverse, or brake. I...

    Hello, I am new to model trains and this is my first post here so please forgive me if this is a very beginner question and I am missing something obvious. I have a Prodigy Express Command Control station which I am not very happy with and have plans to move to Digitrax in the future. But for...

    The first was in a Tenshodo brass GN R2 2-8-8-2 to which a Tsunami decoder had been added by a previous owner (I bought it off eBay). There is no model # on the decoder, but it looks like a TSU-1100, though it may be an earlier version. The second was in a brand new BLI GN S2 4-8-4 with Paragon...

    I got one off ebay, but have yet to try it out. Anyone have any experience with this circuit breaker/block detector/transponder? I'm particularly interested in if there is any limit on wire length from the device to the track. I seem to recall that current sensing devices did not like long...

    Having some trouble figuring out the wiring for block detection. Here’s the background: A. HO scale layout, 17’ x 13’. B. Two loops / ovals, one on the outside (the main) and one on the inside (the branch line) which does not always parallel the main. C. I have one Digitrax booster, which...

    Hello Everyone! After building my Dad’s old Marx O-27 train into a layout last winter I am starting my own HO, DCC layout and I could use some help, advice, or whatever and I figured this would be a good place to come to. ( At this point, I...
  9. O Scale
    Hi All, I have a question regarding DCC. I have an MTH freight set and that I am considering purchasing the Digitrax ZEPX Zephyr Xtra. Is this unit a decoder so to speak in itself? Or is this is a separate subject matter? I read articles about decoding your engine Etc. What is occurring here...

    I am stuck on which to choose from; the Digitrax decoder dh123 and the dh 163. What is their differences? It would be going into an Athearn Rio Grande 5338. If you guys could help it would be great!

    I am planning on using the digitrax zephyr as a starter set but need to know what track to use. Also if you have any suggestions as to a different controller for around the same price I would like to hear about it.

    I have an easy trick to extend the life of your digitrax command station and Boosters. As a lot of you know heat or excessive heat build up in electronics is a bad thing! Adding a fan to help dissipate heat is smart and very cost effective. I just used a 3" computer fan to blow air across the...
