Hello Everybody,

My name is Oscar Konijn from Woubrugge Netherlands. I am 56 jears young and a restarter in this hobby. I have N-scale rail and trains.
My goal is to start with a digital controled track. Not to big to start with. I wanna use the Dynamo system powered by I-train software .
The dynamo system gives me the opportunity to ride with analog and digital controled locomotives at the same time.

I hope to find help here in questions i have and maybe can give  some  help to others.

greets from Oscar

Kudos for jumping back into the hobby. My only observation is that I have heard that DC locomotives can run quite hot on a DCC powered layout unless they are continuously moving, or parked in a non-powered section of the layout.  I have a couple of early Kato n scale E8's that I upgraded to DCC for just this reason.
