Hi am considering going over to DCC on my next layout, but have a very tight budget. Layout is gonna be an oval approx 8ftx4ft, maximum number of about 5-6 locos and only two running at once, which dcc setup should i go for?

Hi
Without any doubt, the NCE Power Cab. Selling in the UK currently for around £118 GBP See UK retailers web sites at - DCC Supplies, Digitrains and Bromsgrove Models etc

Hmm You didnt say what your budget limits are?? If you feel £120ish is OTT, then youre really down to the very basic train set consoles selling at around £50 to £80 GBP.
The two that immediately spring to mind are the Bachmann EZ 36-500 or the Hornby Select. But be warned both are very basic consoles.

Here is a list of a few with pices:

Hornby Select (I use this and have had a lot of problems with it)-£64.50
EZ-Command DCC Unit-£61.50

Those are the cheapest,

The NCE powercab can be purchased for £90 and will last you giving more versatilty and will run two locos at once no problems, the extra paid is well worth it.
