Re: dcc digital

Remember that with DCC the track and loco wheels and pickups need to be scrupulously clean. What’s OK for DC ain’t OK for DCC.

Re: My layout

I’ve always thought the idea of posting layout pictures was to give others ideas as to what can be done. You see things and think I could do that. Sometimes it might be just a tiny thing.
