Hi,

I have the Bachamann EZ command and fancy building an very small z gauge layout. I know it is probably (definitely) impossible to fit decoders to z gauge locos so I was wondering whether anyone knew if I could use number 10 (the analogue button) to power it? I am not sure whether it will be too much??

Thanks,

George

There are several users of Z gauge and DCC on the Yahoo group DCCUK. Join and ask their advice.
As far as I know they fit decoders in the following truck/coaches

George,

I started with the EZ-Command, I have operated DCC locos on channels 1-9 and an unchipped loco on channel 10 but never more than three at a time, the EZ gets hot enough to make toast. There is a slight buzz from the unchipped loco and it is recommended not to leave it standing powered for too long.

I bought the NCE control set up some time ago, this is more sophisticated and can run more trains, however changing control of a consist or loco requires three separate button presses, the EZ requires just one. The NCE will not run an unchipped loco.
