This is why I keep preaching that we need a converter board that takes basic TMCC signal commands and converts them to DCC commands. You can continue to use your remotes but also control a DCC locomotive.

For the novice modeler and hobbyist like me, what opportunities does this open up? Being able to control DCC with a Legacy remote would be cool, but what other benefits are there? And how many O gauge locos run on DCC natively? I'm trying to gauge how big a boon it would be to have Legacy + DCC. Aren't MTH locos built with a DCC chip socket - just buy DCC and stick it in? Someone in the thread mentioned that PS3 had DCC out of the box (I'm coming into the hobby as MTH is closing up shop, I don't know much about them). If that's true then Legacy could become the one-stop option for Command Control - control Lionel, MTH, and DCC with one remote! But again, some people seem to be saying that it's not a good idea to put Lionel on DCC track, so how practical could this be?
