DCC instructions in English

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Wiring for DCC : One Thread

I am new to DCC! I am also electronically illiterate. Does anyone publish DCC instructions in English. I am attempting to set up a Digitrax Chief set for my N Scale layout.

It can be confusing, but is not really that complicated. Like setting the clock in your VCR :) Your best bet is to find a local club or hobby shop or NMRA chapter and ask some one to give you a hand. Or ask a friend who is knowledgable about electronics to help. Let them install a decoder while you watch and help you set up the DCC controller, etc. A one on one demonstration is the fastest way to learn.
