DCS isn't dead...actually it's now being installed in Atlas engines instead of TMCC. I get so tired of the fanboys that feel it necessary to push their narrative! It wouldn't surprise me if they went door to door with this tripe.
As for MTH DCS, I too would love to hear the latest from the west Michigan group.
DCS isn’t dead. But it has reached the end of the track as far as development is concerned.
But now it’s a great time for the hobby. Lionel and the hobby are doing great and the latest Lionel Catalog reflects that time of optimism. Be happy!!
