Back in 2014 I wrote this post with some rambling on how to select a DCC Command Station. All of them do the job, this one has this feature and that one that … in the end it mainly becomes a personal preference. I chose the ESU ECoS … because I thought it ‘sexy’.
Today my choice would be different. For over a year now the Digikeijs DR5000 is on the market … I have never seen a DCC Command Station that packs so many different interfaces and data protocols in one box. Besides this wealth of connectivity, it also delivers max 3A of DCC current at a selectable output voltage (15-24V). All this comes at a very reasonable price somwhere around €150,-. And … in its own way it is sexy too, with all its blinking LED’s. 🙂
