Hello, how is everybody today? Well I am new to this hobby forum and I have to say that I am pleased to see a forum that is used truly for what it is intended for. I have been reading your posts and I have been getting alot of good information and ideas for my model railroad (I'm trying to build a representation of the N&W in the last days of steam). I will have alot of questions to ask as I am just starting to get into the DCC aspect of the hobby. I recently installed an MRC Brilliance sound decoder in one of my Js and it works great. I have a few Y-3 mallets to convert But I really can't decide on which decoder to use. Does anyone out there hve a preference to which decoder I should use. I have no brand loyalty right now since I am just getting started. So far, the MRC does well but that is the only decoder I have ever had or even used. I am at a little of a disadvantage because in my area I think I am one of the only ones involed in this hobby so I don't have access to anyone elses layout for a demonstration. Anyones input would be apreciated. Thanks again.
