      I'm always intrigued by these electrical discusssions, but they do remind me of a cartoon for some reason...

      Fifty Bucks?  Ouch.  Are you driving motors or 'amplifying' DCC logic level outs?

      Building out districts, actually.  There has been some work with DCC++ to get the base stations to be smart about districts, but it doesnt look like its plug and play yet. 

      Though at $50 a board, I think Dave Bodnar's approach is a bit better.  Its definitely cheaper.

      Ah yes, I keep forgetting you are doing a track power thing.
