What about DCC? Digital Command Control for the Daneburg Subdivision

October 19, 2017

With a layout arriving any day and no DCC to run it we needed to figure out what to use...

One of the outstanding items that we needed to work on to make sure that all of our ducks were in a row to get the Daneburg Subdivision up and running again was to figure out what we were going to do for Digital Command Control on this layout. Because the Layout is coming from Europe, the DCC system that Pelle was using was 220V, so naturally it stayed with Pelle (he says the Daneburg subdivision was his last layout but we're secretly hoping that he'll use that DCC system on some future project).

With and incredible layout heading our way we wanted to get the DCC arrangements taken care of. There are a lot of great DCC systems available but the favorite among our team here is NCE. So of course we gave our friends at NCE a call and told them what we were looking for and they took great care of us! A few days later the package pictured below arrived with a ton of goodies to get the Daneburg Subdivision running smooth.
