I am pleased to announce that, effective immediately, The DCS WiFi Companion 2nd Edition is available!

This newly updated and expanded, 242-page, four-color guide discusses, in detail, how to implement complete WiFi control of DCS on new and existing layouts. It contains more than 100 pictures and illustrations that educate the reader on the basic and advanced, features and functions of DCS from the point of view of the Premium version of the DCS App for smart phones and tablets.

In addition to an introduction to DCS and command control in general, the book includes:

  • Capabilities and use of the Premium version of the DCS App.
  • Implementation of DCS WiFi on new or existing layouts via standalone or home network access.
  • Setup, installation, operation, and software updating of the Wireless Interface Unit (WIU).
  • Expanded coverage of troubleshooting and DCS App operation.

The 2nd edition book has completely new sections and Appendices devoted to:

  • Installation and operation of MTH's new DCS Explorer.
  • Adding Lionel® Legacy and TMCC, LCS components to seamlessly operate those command control locomotives.
  • Installation of the DCS Application on a Kindle device.
  • How to simulate Z4K Tracks.

The new book has additional discussions regarding:

  • Controlling the Lionel® TMCC Crane Car with the DCS Application.
  • Adding duplicate engines to the DCS Application.
  • Differences between Android and iOS versions of DCS Application screens.
  • Moving lashups, and TMCC and Legacy engines between the Inactive and Active Engine Lists.
  • New information regarding Import and Export.
  • Additional troubleshooting WiFi connectivity and PS2 engine battery issues.
  • How to update the WIU’s firmware using an iOS or Android, smartphone or tablet.
  • ...and much more!

You can purchase the new printed book from many fine OGR sponsors, and also directly from MTH as either an eBook or a printed book.

I hope that you enjoy reading The DCS WiFi Companion 2nd Edition as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Gerry,

Yes, all of it's the 2nd edition, in detail. In fact, it's also in the 1st edition, though it's better in the 2nd.

What is your cell number?

I don't post phone numbers on public forums. E-mail me your phone number and I'll call you.

Barry,

I ordered the three copies of your book as soon as it was available on Amazon. One for a friend, and the rest for myself. I also purchased the electronic copy as well. So, I hope that these purchases will add to your retirement fund. I will see you at THE DCS Seminar so I can get your priceless signature. Until then, Thank You again and those who helped you write this latest edition.

Mike,

I will see you at THE DCS Seminar so I can get your priceless signature.

Allan,

FYI, although several dealers have purchased copies for resale, I don't know if those dealers will be attending York. If you want a to purchase a copy (and I agree that you definitely should do so ) at the York MTH is accepting orders for York delivery.

You'll have to call them to place an order.

Hi Barry

I ordered the book and received it yesterday, well written and easy to read. Thank you it has been a great help in the planning of the wiring of the layout, again many thanks.

Barry,

I just purchased the 2nd Edition WIFI Companion at a local train store on their recommendation to help planning a new layout.  I don't have any DCS equipment at this time and I'm not sure I want to run WIFI and may use the DCS remote.  Did I purchase the wrong book for an absolute beginner who may be using the DCS remote or would the standard 3rd edition be better.
