Lately I have been thinking of what route I want to go with on my DCC system and realize I have no idea what system would be best for my needs. Right now I have a old Digitrax Zephyr system that is good, but I know way underpowered for my plans. I'm also tired of not being able to read Atlas Lenz decoder with the system! From what I've read it seems like Digitrax and NCE are the best bets out there with the price/value. I'm not really huge into the whole electronic and wiring aspect of the hobby so I want to make sure the system is as user friendly and simple as possible when it comes to operating and possible upgrades. What I'm looking for in a system is: Ability to run 10+ trains and MU's of 5-6 engines. Layout will be fairly large, planning on at least 20'x30' or double decker if smaller. Not overly complicated trackage wise though, mostly single main line and only one large yard. All of the turnouts will be manual and no signals. Don't plan on ever using a computer so computer interface not needed. Want to make sure it is a all-in-one system with the ability to read and write CV values. I know some of the Digitrax systems don't offer this ability. Price isn't a huge issue within reason, I don't want to pay a bunch for features I don't use. Would be nice to get a basic starter package and be able to easily upgrade as the layout grows. Want the ability to have wireless walk-around controller I use 99% Digitrax decoder with several sound versions as well Ok, what do you recommend and why? I like the Zephyr but I'm not a loyal Digitrax guy, I want to make sure I get the best for my needs the first time. Also there aren't any clubs really close to me so going and testing out systems isn't really an option. Thanks for any advice you guys can give. I model in N-scale BTW, forgot to mention.
