Essentially my main goal here is to take my conventional MTH engines and be able to use my Lionel cab 1 remote to make them work. Since MTH is closing up I wanted to give myself the best chance of being able to use my engines in the future assuming I won't be able to get MTH boards in the future., and I love remote control cab 1.
Best sit tight this month. MTH said it would announce the new company taking over DCS sometime in January so you may in fact still have support for those engines. Also something not mentioned so far is when you go to ERR in a steam engine you have to come up another way to generate the chuff signal. MTH doesn't use a switch on the driver axle like Lionel TMCC engines. That will be an added cost in either time, money, or both.
