I cut my DCC teeth using Digitrax. Much of the basic kit was bought on various trips to the USA. I like the system with its two control nobs on each handset and 5amps which allows power to spare for the sound decoders I wanted. I use a DS100 with a DB150 as a booster
I was an early purchaser of Cobalt point motors and found a few troublesome. But DCC Concepts have been very supportive. Their latest Cobalt IP is great and saves the wiring involved with separate stationery decoders. The photo shows the Digitrax 64s I use for the older Cobalts.
The aim is to move all the control equipment off the baseboards.


I have recently bought a couple of Cobalt SS surface mounting point motors and they also seem very good.
I did consider the MERG route and although I admire their work I do not think I am quite up to grasping the intricacies!

Looks like you’re already ahead on the intricacy front compared with me! I am dabbling with Digitrax right now, so hope you include a few pearls of wisdom in your thread. Cheers, Dai

I will try Dai but I am no Digitrax expert. I introduced my model railway club (Shepton & District MRS) to Digitrax and the club now owns a Zenith. I am impressed with what this unit can do.
