Digitrax Company PhilosophyDigitrax is a full time professional company dedicated to bringing superior engineering, quality and affordability to model railroaders everywhere. Super Empire Builder Xtra Advanced Digitrax Command Control Starter Set Everything you need to get started in Advanced Digitrax Command Control for a reasonable price. Super Empire Builder Xtra is perfect for most home and club layouts. The first time we ran a digital command control system we knew we couldn't live without one but, we couldn't afford it either. I have a Digitrax Super Chief system and will be using a PM42 for power management and a BDL168 for block detection. I assume you will have another red line from SD2 to the common side of detection zone 2, and so on.
Also, if you need more than 4 detection sections in a given sub-district, you can wire the PM42 output to more than 1 BDL-168 input.


You probably already realize this, but you each Detection Zone (DZ) doesn't need to have an exclusive Power Subdistrict (SD) feeding it. You just plug the board in and the breakout board has screw terminals to attach the actual wires to. Digitrax decoders and command stations are our answers for model railroaders who want to enjoy the excitement of DCC without taking out a second mortgage.
I have been reading through all the Digitrax manuals plus about a zillion blogs and message boards and think I have my overall track wiring strategy mapped out. I have posted a high-level diagram below--can y'all do a quick review and let me know if I have got this right?
You can get started in DCC for a small initial expenditure with our Zephyr, Empire Builder or Chief Starter Sets and then expand as your needs and interests dictate.


Also note that my turnouts at the ends of passing sidings are wired as independent blocks since I want to eventually have a prototypical CTC installation. By doing this, the turnout blocks will serve as interlockings or control points within the signal system.

    But the track gauge was overscale properties of the industrial.
