Hi, I just joined because I am trying my hand at DCC++. Although I run O gauge AC trains conventionally, I do run some on DC that have motors that pull approx. 0.5 amps. I have dabbled in Picaxe PMW, but other than that, just variable AC (or chopped AC) or straight DC voltage on the rails as my control. I am not a model railroader or highrailer, just like the old-school look of O27 3 rail track and the low-end equipment that runs on it. Also like the traditional look of Plasticville buildings. I do have some S and HO stuff, too! Nice meeting everyone!!! Take care, Joe.
