Hi Brian,

what´s with the "fuel and water"?

That having been said, it is interesting whether UK outline will go DCC in the future as well. Over on the continental market, there are many mainly German companies offering DCC equipment; Uhlenbrock, Tams, Lenz, Zimo and ESU just to name some.

As for me, I buy ESU decoders only, because I know how to program them and wouldn´t want to adapt to a different brand. One of my friends only uses Zimo for the same reason, another one Tams. Maybe Hornby can get its market share the same way, by providing a well-documented decoder that has default settings for their own engines, like ESU´s defaults for instance are set for Roco motors. Not having to program the CVs to get an engine running fine with DCC may be the cutting edge for a Hornby decoder in the UK, along with universal availability.
