Hey thanks! As a matter of fact I have an old EZCommand DC controller and power pack.

Mentioned a few posts above but may I recommend downloading SCARM. You can click on EZ Track and it will offer the pieces available and you can play around forever with layout possibilities.  There are I'm sure better ones out there buut for a clueless techno-idiot like me it works great.

Sorry if this has been covered before. With HO NS EZ Track, are regular EZ Track turnouts(example a #5 right-hand) going to work all right on a DCC layout rather than buying the equivalent DCC turnout? They will not be run through the controller(MRC Prodigy Advanced)-- the provided push-button switches will just be mounted on the edges of the benchwork. Thanks!

Yeah we're figuratively on the same page here flare...I was hoping though there'd be a magical, clean, easy answer that hadn't crossed my mind.

Yeah my only thought so far is similar-- to cut a section  out then  remove the plastic tabs on each end of the pieces going in.

Ok here's what's most likely a question with an obvious answer but I'm not seeing it. 72 x 96 loop layout with a couple turnouts. I used EZ track with double side carpet tape adhering it to board and ballast glued in place. Would like to add a turnout. How do you take up a section of the track? The plastic tabs holding individual sections of track together would seem to preclude a simple pulling up one or two sections of track as it's connected continuously in the loop.

That would be the ideal BUT the unit now will not come on at all. Tried the unplug/power off several times and nothing is happening. Thanks--

This one is 0001027-- and as I say, the info is pretty conflicting in the instructions. Ideally will get an answer from my shop people this week. On the "bright" side, the unit does run the loco comparatively nicely in DC--  have not used a remote for control before. Interesting. Thanks again for the help and if any other ideas-- I'm all ears.

Thanks for the reply-- in  the info in the instructions it says it can be used as  DCCdecoder. "Can be used as full function DCC decoder. Compatible with NMRA DCC standards."
Having said that, at the top it does say "for use with any DC operated layout."
I will talk to my  hobby shop Monday and have started the return process to Bachmann. Thanks again.

Hi all-- New to modelling but have been using EZ command controller DCC for several months no problem. Put a new loco(DCC  sound) on track per instructions  to program to new address-- took off full speed, none of the controls would stop it, including stop button. Put it on my other layout  and plugged in controller on it(I only have the one controller but two layouts. same thing-- around the track once. Took loco off again by hand.  Now controller does not function, no lights or anything. Unplugged it  for two minutes per instructions, plugged back in-- nothing on either layout. Loco  was purchased as DCC ready, hobby shop which does these all the time installed MRC Diesel Onboard Module. They are closed for the weekend so can't ask them.  Is there a reset procedure other than un plugging it?And why did it respond this way?  BTW I plugged in my DC controller and the new loco has engine running sound only, my other locos run the way their sound is preprogrammed to when on DC. Thanks!

That was a thought I had as well--- thank you!

Now THAT's worth a try! Thanks.

Anyone have any simple ideas for deadening EZ Track noise, even just slightly, before I fix the track to plywood? It will be ballasted as well which will make it even noisier.
14  Discussion Boards / E-Z App / Re: EZ App with command control? on: March 06, 2016, 10:54:41 PM
Thanks-- that's what I figured. Sure wish Bachmann would run a few more CN Rail locos with DCC/sound.
15  Discussion Boards / E-Z App / EZ App with command control? on: March 06, 2016, 08:37:26 PM
Will the new EZ App locos(e.g., MD GP35 Canadian National #4000 with E-Z App -- HO Scale Model Train Diesel Locomotive -- #68805) function in a regular dcc sound mode as well, i.e., can they simply be run with the EZ Command System or must they be run by the app? Thanks.
