I am very interested to see what new items Lenz introduce at the Nuremburg show in a couple of weeks time. I wasn't impressed by their DCC offerings last year. If they don't come out with a new command station with a graphic display ala ECoS, Viessmann, Maerklin, Trix and soon Dynamis, then one has to wonder if they have decided that there are better things they can do with their investment euros, such as their O gauge range, design work for Heljan and so on. In other words having established the standards and market for DCC, they are moving on and leaving the field for the mass manufacturers.

No no and thrice no. Pretty please not again
>Roco, Lenz or ESU at Warley?
I think Mackays Models, the distributors of Roco and Lenz would be be very upset to think that their presence at Warley meant nothing.
ESU have only recently appointed South West Digital as their UK distributor. South West were at Warley and had the ECoS on display and I was able to buy a LokPilotDCC from them.
and Zimo have only just appointed DCC Supplies who also had a stand at Warley and I bought an MX63R from them.
Digitrax certainly went "Large" at Warley but I think this might have been their first time? Previously they have relied on Sunningwell Controls to bang the drum for them?
