After looking at the new Legacy base in the catalog, I noticed there is no more serial port on the base.  I currently use the serial port for my dz2500 switch machines and my old TMCC base.  I have the zstuff data wire driver plugged into the base which supplies all my switches with the command signal.  I would assume to continue use of that with the new base I would now need to buy the LCS serial 2 unit?  If I am thinking about this correctly, the ser2 would plug into the new base with the LCS ports. I would then plug my Zstuff data wire driver into the ser2 to get my command signal for the switches.

I was also still using the old command base (plugged in via the y adapter) so I had 2 remotes (Cab1, and Cab2).  Can I also plug my TMCC base into the LCS serial unit to still use the old remote?  Or do I need to get the new cab1L if I want a second remote?

Does this sound correct?

Sounds right to me.  I have the SER2 connected to my Legacy base, that's where the serial data for the DZ-2001 wire driver connects for me.

I was also still using the old command base (plugged in via the y adapter) so I had 2 remotes (Cab1, and Cab2).  Can I also plug my TMCC base into the LCS serial unit to still use the old remote?  Or do I need to get the new cab1L if I want a second remote?

I don't see anything about plugging in the old BASE1, so this is a @Dave Olson question.
