Now that I'm playing with DC powered trains to run on my Gauge1 track,
I'm running into all sorts of questions which hopefully someone here can
at least direct me to possible info on.
Maerklin have their 'delta' controller, LGB have MTS and Aristo-craft
have something else. I am seeing DCC in the smaller scales and there
seems to be a level of compatibility in that, but what should I be
looking for and is there any decent on-line links that can help me out.
Since my background is electronics anyway and I have a well equipped
workshop, I don't have any problem knocking up what ever control gear I
need and have been programming controllers for more years than I care to
remeber. DC power is readily available without having to pay 100GBP +
for a 'special' power pack and at the end of the day I just want to run
A train round A track. ( At present - until I get some steam power
I've picked up a Maerklin 54504 and an Aristo-craft 21001 both without
any handbooks - which I do now have - and I probably should have thought
about this before, but I expected to just put 12V in and get get some
movement :) - It looks like this could now be 18 to 22V but even that is
not actually listed anywhere.
