Maybe, but then it would have to be a padded room.
QUOTE My DCC experience is that I am a busy person wanting to set a layout up, plug in a console, put a few locos on the track, and have a bit of fun. I have absolutely no interest in the technology and how it works. As long as it does what I want it to do then I am very happy. From this perspective I have had 100% success to date with both the el cheapo Bachmann and Hornby systems and they are all I am ever likely to need.
I have read this statement a number of times and quite frankly I don't think we can really fault it. It may not represent the majority of the people here but there must be a place for this kind of person in the hobby as well as on this forum. I know in the US there are more than a few model railroaders that seem to be an expert on everything yet when you actually ask them they don't even have a running layout! They have set expectations so high that they have in fact overwhelmed themselves and they could never build the layout that they say everybody else has. Now I am not accusing anybody here of this but lets step back and judge what we say and how it may appear to the beginner or casual hobbyist honestly.
What's wrong with the person described above? Frankly I think nothing. Let's show a little respect for that type of hobbyist. Gary may irk some with the way he delivers some of his opinion but that doesn't necessarily mean that all of the points he makes are rubbish. I would hate to take any hobby to seriously. If I did I would quit.
