Unhappy Re: New set in mind

From what I've heard, if you're going DCC then it's worth buying an upper-end control unit, or you'll only have to upgrade it

The loco decoders start at about UK£10, but quality, number of functions etc vary again. So, although for a cheap controller + 1 engine setup you could be looking at ~UK£50 (e.g. a number of manufacturers are doing "digital train sets" these days with this sort of kit), for a decent set-up with decoders for your exisating engines I'd say you're looking at UK£300+ (which is one reason I've not made the switch yet! )
