For train operation then its no contest - dcc wins hands down,no more looking for isolated sections to stop a loco in. For points etc then dcc at first seems a bit clumbersome with at its basics each point having to be thrown separately unless you purchase, at cost, a point decoder module that powers a route setting arrangement. It took me a while to realise that if the outputs from the point decoder module were fed to the relay coils, then the points can be route set using the diode network arrangement familiar to non-dcc systems, being powerered by the switching mechanism of the relay. Consequently I have 1 tortoise powered signal and 9 relay fed route set points working off a single lenz LS150.With just 5 bi-directional route settings to remember operation is a doddle.
