Digitrax Big Boy

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

I just purchased a used Big Boy at a good price. Can anyone tell me what this older set is missing in comparison to the newest Digitrax systems. Thanks

Primarily the following restrictions:

- Can only support 22 concurrently active locomotives or consists vs. 120 - Cannot read back decoder CVs - No separate concurrent programming output

On the plus side, it supports loco net and the booster would make an excellent expansion booster for the new Zephyr which does have all the latest features at an excellent price.
