Hi Paul,

Welcome to the club. O0 in the jungle. You will need to do some extra work re rail connections and protection for point motors and the like, plus exterior cable wiring runs (waterproof conduits, junction boxes).  DCC is just like DC, as simple or as complicated as you want it.


Nigel

Hi Paul and welcome to the merry band. It's been said that there is no such thing as a stupid question, some think that that's questionable, while others consider that it's just a case of relativity, as we were all beginers in everything once. So ask away and you will receive everything you need!

DCC can be as simple or as complex as you wish, depending on how you want to use it. I'm starting simple, but can already see ways to get it to do more for me on the railway. So unpack your train set (great choice by the way, going GWR), find somewhere to set it up, follow the instructions and play trains. Before you know it, it will become second nature and you'll have begun a great adventure!

Ask away, we're here to help.

Bill

A Lincolnshire man modelling GWR - there's nowt as queer as folk !!!

Welcome to the club Paul - as Bill said, there's no such thing as a stupid question - it's all a matter of what one knows and what one doesn't know so ask anything you need to.

I'll be interested in seeing how you get on with your garden railway - will it be up on stilts or at ground level ?

Enjoy looking around here - there's loads to see and read. :cheers

Welcome Paul.

I am sure we all look forward to seeing your progress and never be afraid to ask although my knowledge of a garden railway is very limited. I used to fly radio controlled planes ans helicopters too.
