Re: Gaugemaster Q

Sorry for any confusion on the location of this post.

Now moved to the dc section instead of the DCC section that I originally moved it to. Still getting used to the moderator and administrator controls of this new forum.

Re: Bachmann points

As far as I know, they have the same geometry as Hornby points but as the description says, these are non isolating. This means they would work OK on DCC layouts but not the best choice for dc.

Re: How can DCC work on different voltages.

DCC decoders and controllers are allowed a wide operating voltage. See https://www.nmra.org/sites/default/file ... s_2006.pdf

Re: Hornby Elite to DCC Concepts AD S8sx

You can allocate any valid accessory address to any port on the ADS8 decoders but each port has to be added individually. There is no facility for them to be programmed with a block of addresses in a single operation that I am aware of.

Re: Electro Frog Points

Have you checked that the Seep frog output is actually switching? These switches are known to be rather unreliable.

Re: What cheap dcc controller?

I wouldn't normally recommend the EZ Command but for a youngster it's probably the easiest to use.
