DCC++ Links

dcc_pp

I’ve put together a list of links that I think are essential to the DCC++ project.

The YouTube videos are excellent and the 4 hardware related ones are all I needed to get my system up and running. The first 3 deal with theory and are very helpful. The 4th is the actual construction instructions.

There is an extensive discussion about DCC++, including further developments of the system available on the Trainboard forum.

    • Thanks for the comment. I am doing everything through JMRI and smart phone. I do want to build a throttle some time for a stand alone project I’m dreaming up. Dave Bodnar is the go to guy for that. I’ve got him in the links.

      • Thank you Greg! I have been corresponding with Dave and am ready to try his throttle but really look forward to creating something with more tactile controls aka the ProtoThrottle but for a steam locomotive. A steam beachhead design exists as sketches and as a prototype on my desk but what to actually include and how it will interact with the engine remains to be seen.
