UPDATE 3: So I went to my local Hobby Shop yesterday, and they said they wouldn't actually do the reset there, they'd have to outsource it. Which seems ridiculous to me, but whatever. And then they said it'd take about a month and cost $20. So I just kinda said, "Thanks but no thanks" and looked into the DCS RC more.
Now, according to this thread posted here in 2016, you CAN factory reset with the DCS RC (and also that the W-B sequence doesn't count as a factory reset). Considering that, with Black Friday being tomorrow (meaning that TrainWorld's DCS RC will probably be on sale), I could just get that system and reset for just over double the cost in probably less time, and then have a command system to boot afterword. So that's my plan.
