I have been recently enquiring lots about my layout track plan, how to wire it all up and what sort of points to use (electrofrog or insulfrog) but now I am beginning to consider DCC. You will need to wire the points up the same for reliable operation on DC just as you would for DCC, there is no difference.
Since the Morley controller will cost more than a basic DCC system (and more than some more advanced systems like the Roco MultiMaus) your only real cost of going DCC is the cost of adding decoders to your locos, a small cost which will be offset by not having to wire a control panel (a very expensive part of any analogue layout).
My main layout is O gauge and again, went DCC partly due to not being able to face wiring up all the sections I would require, plus the cost of all the switches, A?170 using the cheapest I could find, with DCC I have two switches, one for the turntable control the other for the layout lighting. So my advice is go DCC as you will have better control, and in the end if you spead the cost and not chip all locos at once, and when bying new get them with chips in, it is cheaper, and I would also recommend that you try the control systems to find the right one for you. In the end i chose the Hornby Elite as for a small amount more it had a bigger power supply and was able to address 256 locomotives where as the dynamis was only able to roster 40.


By all means listen to opinion but dont take it as gospel, go to a shop, a freind and have a play.
The Dynamis was in a way the replacement for the EZ-Command infact the dynamis is also marketed under the EZ-command name.
Ive used a dynamis and found it very very easy to use, with a very good graphical interface, you can do a reasonable level of programming, but you cannot read-back CV values, it has a 3amp PSU i believe and has the option that its wireless so you can move round.
However as ive said the dynamis didnt meet my power or programming needs so was unsuitable. By clicking Confirm bid you commit to buy this item from the seller if you are the winning bidder. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount.
The wiring is again all from the scrap bin and VERY simple, not all sections of rail have been connected, but most rail joints have a jumper if required.
I have a Prodigy 2 which I like that has a fixed controller ie on a lead, plus I bought the wireless unit, due to the position of my layout.
Hornby have remedied this by various firmware upgrades which made the operation easier, but the two control knobs to dynamis's 1 and the programming features meant i found the elite much better for my needs. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.


Sometimes I just feel like saying stuff it and going for DC with a Morley Vesta controller and just using insulfrog points - much easier. If I was starting now I would buy the NCE power pro system as I think it is slightly better and cheaper than the prodigy but not quite as user friendly. Cost nil as all wire used was from scrap cable, 30amp mains for the bus wires and computer network cable for the droppers that came out of a skip many years ago when the company I worked for upgraded their network system.

Because at A?15.75 each I was surprised - I thought people said they were about A?40 for a good chip. And yes good idea about spreading the cost, I only have five locos at the minute so it shouldn't be too bad - maybe I could buy a new chip every week then it would only take five weeks to do it lol.What is a jumper? Is that like two wires connecting to the next piece of track or something?Yes I am being twisted towards DCC now, I would like to try them out - only thing is I am not a member of any clubs and I don't have any friends that are into modelling.
