I was very surprised at how small the dynamis was. It's similar in concept to the Maerklin/Trix budget efforts which also emanated from ESU. It's hard to tell how big something is from a picture unless you have something to judge it by.

Guess now we know why it looks like a baby Ecos. If it's a good as it's daddy it's sure to get good reviews.

QUOTE Dynamis is a 100% British concept and has had absolutely no input from Bachmann USA. Bachmann USA are interested in offering the product for sale within the USA. Wrong, it's made by a German company ESU, for an American/Chinese company Bachmann, who happen to sell British outline model rail products. Whats British about it?

QUOTE Both products are state of the art with one based around ESU concepts and one based around Lenz concepts. The Dynamis is made by ESU and the Hornby is made by some company in Cambridge. When did we establish that Lenz had any input into the Hornby system? Is this breaking news?

QUOTE There are other systems with this feature too. The Ecos has this feature too.

QUOTE You cannot use a trademark unless you have permission and Hornby have a relationship with Lenz as they use the Lenz trademark in their marketing material. If they use Lenz's name then they will have to show the trade mark this is standard procedure when using another companies name. But in what way do Hornby have a relationship with Lenz as you appear to be insinuating? No-one at any point has alleged that Lenz had any input to the Hornby DCC effort. The closest I've seen is only that Hornby would like it to be compatible with Lenz. It was supposed to have been made by some company in Cambridge. Obviously as you are partial to insider information you may have something you want to share with us?

QUOTE Yes both companies have partners and the concepts are British I would agree with the Hornby aspect of this statement as their partner is British but unless you have information that has not been stated elsewhere then I can't see what is British about the Bachmann DCC program other than where it will be sold and that the management have an office in the UK. If you have more info we would all love to hear it?

This quote comes from the Dynamis thread QUOTE The system has been developed in conjunction with German DCC specialist ESU and features a compact wireless handset reminiscent of the Playstation Portable (PSP) games console. Dynamis shares many features with the acclaimed ESU ECoS command station (see MR99), but is considerably smaller. Doesn't sound 100% British then does it?
