Re: Invisible Train

Of course there are plenty of similar photos online. They all try to outdo each other with how good they are at photoshop.
Here's a fake video that's even more cleverly done. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4qkQMudpII

I burned out several decoders before I found out that when I was putting the body back on the motor contacts were moving and causing a short circuit.

Re: Which DCC controller do you recommend

The DCC Concepts advice is years out of date. It should either be updated or taken down. You really can't decide on a DCC system from the advice given in it.
I use the Roco Multimaus system. If I had the cash I'd buy their Z21 wireless system.

Re: Consists

What decoders do you have? Advanced consisting is best. The other one you (and me) were trying to think of is "Universal" Consisting. :)
