Just got a good deal on a DCC Ready Hornby Stanier 2-6-4 tank. Company unable to locate that model so sent me a DCC Fitted model instead for the same price - an even better deal. I was planning to start DCC sometime soon but this has forced my hand a little. Basically, are DCC-fitted locos (Hornby or Bachmann) a good thing to go for? I've seen a lot of debate on MRF about Hornby decoders, and the preference for Lenz. I've had a rummage through DCC FAQs and DCC Installation, so realise it's a massive topic.

On a side issue, it's great that the development of LMS 2-6-4 tanks to BR Standard can be seen in available models - from Fowler & Stanier (both Hornby) to Fairburn and BR Standard (both Bachmann).
