Since I'm new to tinplate, and loving it, I only buy what MTH has been making, I don't want antiques. MTH offers ps2 & ps3 to run with dcs.
I prefer traditional transformer operation , I just wonder how the peanut gallery runs their DCS MTH or LIONEL LLC trains of the last few years, traditional only, DCS only , or either on at different times. I have a DCS system I bought in 2009 that I can dust off if it is beneficial.
I have 3 tracks I can operate either way.
BTW. I'm hooked on tinplate, feel like I should wear kid gloves when handling, but I have 10 thumbs. LOL
