No - leave it well alone.

In it's day it was quite an advanced control system (& much to FLM's credit still supported, unlike some other manufacture's) - but additional decoders, in fact everything will cost more.

It is not compatable with NMRA DCC systems (like you Multimaus) which are more prolific. Best thing to do with the FMZ system is to eBay it - FMZ fetches quite good money to people who have invested heavily into it in the past.

Stick with the Multimaus & look at upgrading if you feel the need - there are plenty of cost effective systems out there.

Oh, & welcome to MRF.

Hello and welcome Kevin

If you are going to list it on E bay make sure you list to post Worldwide

as they fetch good prices in Germany and with other Continental Buyers

The FMZ loco's are easy to convert to DCC though
