"This is not a "Yueltide" magnitude error."

Opinions vary .  The Yueltide passenger car can at least operate, is readily available,   and no one is likely to notice the misspelling while in motion.  The absence of the Base 3 is much more a comparable problem for some folks with Lionel locos, as is the absence of TIUs, handheld remotes and WTIUs for those with DCS/PS3/PS2 locos.  It isn't the typo, it's the lack of availability that is aggravating people in both cases.  Hopefully both companies will have solved that problem by this summer.

From what I recall, the last official update was in December 2023. It said production would start this year.

I do not personally expect it this year but maybe we will learn more at York in a few weeks.

Here’s the post about that official update:

Apparently, they figure sometime in 2024, but they're pretty vague about exactly when.


An entirely new DCS App for both iOS and Android for use with the DCS WiFi TIU system announced in late 2020 is coming in 2024. The new 2024 apps will be released when the DCS WiFi TIU (WTIU) hits store shelves next Summer and IS REQUIRED for phone and tablet control of the DCS WiFi TIU. Users will not be able to use any previous versions of the DCS App to run the new DCS hardware when it's released as there are many new features and functions coming with the new hardware that the current apps are unable to activate.


The long-awaited DCS WiFi TIU will finally enter production in 2024. Like many electronic devices, from televisions, computers, cameras, appliances, and automobiles, the release of the DCS WiFi TIU was severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Global component shortages and significant disruptions to the engineering and design work pushed the hardware back nearly two years from M.T.H.'s original delivery estimation.

Over the coming months, more details about the new features found in the DCS WTIU and 2024 DCS App will be announced. Subscribers to the MTH E-Newsletters will automatically receive those updates as they are published.
