*** Because the limited functionality and programming of the EZ command prevents the best being obtained from the decoder and therefore the locomotive... and its totally hopeless with sound or any real function control.

Yes, the EZ command is a functional trainset controller but its quite crippled compared to a real controller... I really do think the saving isn't really worth considering - The Powercab has all the functionality of a high price system for not much more than a hundred quid.

Starting with the EZ command means that just like starting with DC only, a second unwanted cost is waiting in the wings.

Yes, it is basic but it is OK as a starter. In fact, I have been using it for over a year and don't intend changing it all that soon. My layout is only big enough to run two trains at a time and it will do that easily. Why pay more?
