Phil,

Does anyone near you have a different brand of DCC system you could try?  If someone has and NCE Power Cab that would be the one to try first.

Jim,

Yes the fit.  There are two axles per.  There is no problem getting one set now and the other some time in the future when money allows.

Jim,

I have used the LGB #67403 Wheel Sets with built in power pickups on several Big Hauler tenders over the years.  They easy to install and reliable. Yes they are on the upper end price wise.

I would like the people at Bachmann to have a chance to answer this before the rest of the world chimes in.

Is there room in the Little Big Hauler Locomotives for a DCC Decoder?
What is the stall current so a person can pick a proper decoder?

I have a friend that his young daughter is enjoying visiting the various train shows and clubs in our area and we would like to get her started with a Little Big Hauler set.  She had been learning a little about DCC and would probably like her locomotive to run with the others we run at the museum I volunteer at.

Once more, please let the people at Bachmann have a chance to answer, thanks,

Nathan

Bob,

When it comes to DCC systems everyone has their favorite.  Many are happy with the Bachmann systems.  I am happy with NCE.  Many use Digitrax.  Visit with some local people in your area that use DCC and try out the various systems.  Choose the one the you feel meets your needs, not someone elses.

Everyone has their favorite system.  If you are near some clubs go see what they use.  Go to the local train shows and see what people use on the layouts.

I have been using NCE for many years and  I am happy with their products.  Many people are happy with the Bachmann systems.  The same can be said for every system on the market.

There are a number of other systems on the market.  Ram Track has their Strip Led.  I have seen others but I do not recall the names.

A friend has the V & T #25 he just acquired used.  Can someone tell us which version of the 4-6-0 it is so he can make some choices on DCC or Radio Control and he knows what is related to his loco on the available information on the web site.

Thanks,

Nathan

At the WGH show in San Antonio, TX, Feb 20 and 21, a group of Clubs and individuals coordinated by the San Antonio N Scale Club, SANTRAK, hope to set a new record for the longest continuous T-Trak Red Line in excess of 12 scale miles.  At the present time the record is 10.08 scale miles.

The layout will have 9 separate T-Trak Yellow Lines that should total close to that length as well.

Will let you know the final results.

Start here for what I am talking about:

http://www.dccwiki.com/Auto_reverser

The boards that you can use are available from multiple sources.  Everyone you talk to will have a favorite.
Digitrax makes the AR1.  Tam Valley Depot makes a 'Frog Juicer'/Auto-Reverser.  DCC Specialties makes the OG-AR and PSX-AR.  Lenz makes the LK200.  MRC makes the AD520.  I know there are others, I just can not find them real quick.

The SB5 IS NOT and auto reverse unit.  You needed to isolate the reverse loops and add proper auto reverse boards to each loop.

You might want to look at the Lenz web site.

They have online manuals for all their products.
