I've got 3 old Gilbert engines (Reading Pacific {yes it was originally labeled that way, but I have heavily modified it}, Pennsy K5 and a NYC Hudson) all upgraded to DCC.  To be honest, I'd sell all of them as they don't perform nearly as well as the Flyer Chief (2 Berks, a Northern and GP7).

Hennings has/had a 2004 Pacific and Mikado - sold one) - which I thought of purchasing.  Problem: they are TMCC and that's yet another operating system.

Rumor is that Scale Trains is going to use DCC from the get go, which would result in less problems than conversions.

If Flyonel does repop the Mikado, I would probably go for it.

Doubt Scale trains will do much with S but one can hope.
