I can not thank you chaps enough for all the quality advice you have given me to date...
Woke up this morning to several very good replies..for some reason i am not being notified of replies? even though i have (immidiate email) in my settings?
No matter..I seem to have given the impression that i am just going for looks? (wrong) i just use the term looks & sounds good as general term.of course i will not be choosing on looks alone...
really does seem to come very highly recommeded...I think how i should have explained it, was i like the idea of a static control panel like the DIGITRAX ZEPHYR`S
where you can feel the throttle...but if i were to go for something other than the ZEPHYR
(other than the ESU
) that i would have to have a hand unit? the NCE (although i have never seen one) looks big to me`? with small screen? i could be wrong..
Unfortunately..i am as isolated as i make it sound..which is very frustrating..but there are no DCC in my neck of the woods..no shops nor individuals,,and due to illness i can not go touring the country..so all my advice as to come from kind folk like your selves on this forum or through the likes of DCC supplies..
at the moment i own two new BRAWA
dcc loco`s both with ESU
sound chips fitted one is BRAWA
40002 KWStE T5 2-6-2 tank locomotive DC Digital Sound (factory fitted chip) & the other is Electrical locomotives BR E 77 DR (0252) which i had sent to DCC models for ESU
sound chip fitting i have also just purchased two Glaskastens both by TRIX both with SCX???
T22347 OBB 98304 Tank Locomotive III, (T22347) & Trix 21249 Sonderserie KPEV T 2, KKK, Decoder, NEU--> this is the one from the freight ltd edtion set.
Hope this answers the point re-what kind of chips e.t.c. i am learning...have not got a clue about accessory decoders..must just say i never for a second thought this was going to be easy! it is just i am so keen to make the right choices, as i am very good at wasting money..!!!
Certainly it would be sensible to buy a DCC system which is fully upgradable...But i think maybe the ESU ECOS
will be a bridge to far for me? DCC SUPPLIES have a good offer on the ESU ECOS
at the moment.whilst the ROCO PRO MAUS
comes in at £300+i think...
NCE is possibly nearing the winning post
QUOTE 1. it only supports one "slave" controller as it comes; and
2. it only has two memory slots to "remember" what locomotives you are running
Okay if i were to go for the NCE
and i am tempted ...when you say (1) slave controller? does this mean hand held unit remote?
2. it only has two memory slots can this be upgraded? not that even i see this as a problem.
will the NCE
work with all chips and accessories? and in Norway.
Will leave you in peace for a bit..but please get back to me on or off forum @anytime with advice ,suggestions e.t.c.
all helps and the good thing is i do not need to choose today
all the very best & many thanks
