Interesting to note the use of 15V DC power - this makes the DCC system start off with the same volts, but lower current, than Hornby's Live Steam system. Regarding the latter, although the power supply is referred to as a 'transformer' it is actually a switched-mode power supply to save weight and cost over a large torodial transformer. (Admitted by Hornby when I asked them about the power supply.) So one day might we see 'trad' 12V locos running under DCC control on the same tracks as the 'Live steam' locos?
