Yup, I got the gist of what Shawn was saying. My point is the same: Lionel has some great people who are motivated to make Lionel trains (and the hobby) better. It takes credit away from the Lionel team to imply they would have only been motivated to create Legacy because of DCS. Simply... no.
I don't use DCS so I refrain from making any comments about it, much less any negative comments about it's ease of use or it's reliability. However, I have been using TMCC/Legacy for about 25 years and I have used it on many different layouts, both mine and other people's layouts. I have never had a problem installing or using it beyond the single wire hook up. I can say I am not a lucky TMCC/Legacy user...I am a typical TMCC/Legacy user.
I totally and politely disagree.
