If your running digitrax do you need a command station to operate and decode locos and also operate the rest of your layout (such as signals and dcc equipped turnouts) using jmri or can you just have the digitrax PR3.  Huh?

I would suggest going to the Trains.com DCC forum or the Yahoo Digitrax Group. Too much discussion of other brands is sometimes frowned on here by the Powers That Be.

I don't think the question is too far out of bounds. Close, but no ones being dissed, or compared to here. Im just not sure this is the best site to ask it on because I don't read about too many other members using it or JMRI..But, for the best answer I would contact DigiTrax, or JMRI.

I use JMRI but have NCE DCC so I can't help.

JMRI is good if it will work with Digitrax.

logic would dictate that you would need a command station to put the info transmitted into a form the decoders can read. I believe the pr3 is for programming decoders only, and does not supply the higher voltage and current levels needed to actually run trains.

With all the new developments using JMRI/Decoder Pro you can run your layout using a WIFI or your cell phone and Panel Pro, JMRI version. You can't use Bachmann EZ Command nor Bachmann Dynamis, they are not supported since neither has the interface available.

Watch and learn from simple basic Decoder Pro and CV's. Scroll down there are 4 segments each about 15 minutes.

Also here is a link to all JMRI applications and supported DCC Command Stations

http://jmri.sourceforge.net/help/en/html/apps/index.shtml

Likes been said there is so much that's been developed and since I first started using Decoder Pro/JMRI. I even forgot the basics or how to describe them step by step.

This yahoo group to me is the most helpful..
