Alright although I have been in the hobby off and on for over 40 years I just got into DCC a few years back thanks to some very kind Trainboard members here selling or giving me items to get started. Although I like Bachmann very much, and got started with a pair of Bachmann F7 A units and they served very well to learn DCC and get started. As a matter of fact they were/are great locomotives and the only reason one stopped working was my lack knowledge wiring DCC junctions, so I fried one And another very nice member actually gave me the Bachmann EZ Command Controller all I had to do was pay shipping. Man people can be really nice here. So, another nice member had the Atlas U25B CB&Q NCE DCC Equipped locomotives brand new and I just completed the transaction and they should be arriving in the near future. I did as much research and he gave me tons of info on them which I appreciate. I know nothing about the U25B, or Atlas DCC, and to be honest maintaining them as he said they are Brand NEW but might need oiling and breaking in. What exactly type of oil do I need, and what is the proper break in, ( got so excited not sure I did break in correct on Bachmann locomotives), but they still have lasted years, well one of them. As I officially retire very, very soon, I plan on branching out to all kinds of locomotives. Not in quantity exactly but maybe a few of different brands I couldn't afford before, or wanted to afford really, cause I was or am cheap Any information appreciated. Also, means probably that the layout will change again, can never decide. But want to do some things right in the future hopefully, although it is still just two small 2' x 4' layout bases. Which you can see on my Youtube channel in my signature link. Thanks so much to all the members that have helped me and sold or gave me model train items and just information, and brought joy to me and my hobby! I also apparently like RED, who knew, not me! Factory picture of what I am getting, and very happy! Like the look a lot. I am not a road name person, just what catches my eye and wallet.
