Reply to "DCS Novices"

I have been using DCS for about 18 years, but mostly just to occasionally run trains for many of those years.  I have 2 TIUs and added Wifi to each one a couple years ago.  I do have AIUs for switch and accessory control - don't let them intimidate you - they are just glorified switches (that just happen to require good bifocals and even better fine motor control to physically install LOL).  In the last year, I have added TMCC control through Base1L.

I am a technologist at heart, but I still run into those cognitive lapses we all sometimes have.  Reading Barry's book in the past 6 months was a great refresher.

My best advice is to try any parts of it you want!  There is always someone here on the forum to help.  I try to help where I can but am usually late to the dance.   Since its basically a toy, its really built to be manageable by most anyone.

On a side note, Barry was very gracious in helping me in the forum during my early foray into MTH and DCS.  I was so saddened upon my return to hear of his passing.
