But it doesn't really matter if you get CV values mucked up, use the decoder leaflet & reset back to factory settings and start again.

Re: What DCC Controler ?

I personally use NCE but work on layouts that use Lenz & Digitrax - not that keen on Digitrax controillers.
I did purchase a Lenz LH90 to be able to use on the other layouts but yesterday I used a new Lenz LH101 and I am impressed with it but, yes, try them all out at shops and/ or exhibitions first.

Re: Capacitor on carriage lights

Be careful if having a lot of coaches with capacitors as the inrush of current when switching the power on may cause the DCC system to shut down.
