QUOTE I have just put four DCC chipped 00 locos for sale on Ebay as my local dealer would not accept them in part ex against Farrish N gauge stock simply because they have been fitted with DCC chips and he does not know anything about it.

QUOTE (Gary @ 10 Sep 2006, 11:47) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>So true. If you are selling a loco with a chip fitted to a dealer then take £10 off the value! Currently it will sit on the dealers shelf gathering dust as customers looking at it will pass.

That will all change in the future. As DCC gradually becomes mainstream, there will be a market for used loco's fitted with decoders (provided it's a decent one).

Who knows, in a few years time dealers might not touch anything without a decoder or socket?
