That's not an easy question to answer. It's like asking what is the best flavor ice cream. An NCE Power Cab or a Digitrax Zephyr will be more than enough to run the layout you are planning. They are relatively inexpensive (around $160 each). The best advice is to try the units if you can. Sometimes you can test drive them at train shows. Of the 2 beginner sets I would go with NCE, but that is a preference. I just don't care for Digitrax. Others love Digitrax. The Bachmann Dynamis is a good system and wireless from the start, but it's more expensive. The EZ Command is VERY limited and only suited to the smallest layouts that will never expand.

I have a Lenz Set 100. I find it very easy to use. Is it best for you? Maybe, but then again maybe not. Try out as many as you can. A little experience is worth far more than a bunch of advice.
