I DON'T regard as an advantage, and I've NEVER claimed otherwise. What
I've always maintained, and continue to maintain, is that for those who
wish to replicate the most common types type of prototypical operation,
DCC enables one to do so quite simply, without recourse to the
complexities of DC block wiring.
You will noi doubt quibble over that, but as I and others have
repeatedly pointed out, the style of operation that you model is
atypical of what most posters here are familiar with. I acknowledge that
in your particular context, DC is more appropriate. I don't wish to
argue that any further.
What you seem incapable, or at best unwilling, to acknowledge is that
the typical North American style of operation is most easily emulated

And I'm fairly sure that you can't. The railway you model is totally
unlike the railway I model, for starters...
