    Kato Unitrak DCC help

    So I am using Kato Unitrak and would like to use a cheap DCC system. If I must, I'll use an analog system, but please help me! I have a double-track layout (two main lines). Currently, I am using a Bachmann DCC EZ-Command system, and whenever a train passes over a curve, it stops. PLEASE HELP!

    What am I in for?

    I like this idea, but the main focus of the layout is a passenger rail service. There is to be a town and whatnot, but as for the yard, all there will be is an engine facility. Like I said, my track plan had changed, and now I have to apply these changes.

    Yep. I have most of the track, but I changed the plan slightly.

    Tack choice for N Gauge Layout.

    Totally Unitrack for a double main. It looks so much better and is a real money saver in the long run.

    Tack choice for N Gauge Layout.

    Hey! Glad to hear you're getting into the hobby. I've just made a selection of track for my layout, so I can relate. Considering you have half of the track you need, I would use the Bachmann EZ track. It's track, as opposed to Atlas, is made of nickel (?), so it won't tarnish. I know of a...

    Your story is one in the same with my own. I already have the bulk of the track, and I got the yard yesterday. I use Kato Unitrack, because it is easy to buy, as they have many ad-on sets. And to all the other comments, all of them mean a lot! Thanks!

    Childhood Dream Layout

    Glad to hear that! I'd use a shelf-style, b/c It's way less of a hassle if a derailment happens.

    What am I in for?

    Hi all, I am just starting to really get to the point in my layout that takes creativity, patience, and money (as if a have all of that), but you all know it a scenery. I'm a teen who uses my own money for my layout, and I'm too young to be employed. So I'm worried that I'll put...

    Kato Viaduct information.

    The gradual incline is nothing important in your case. And yes, you will need single piers if you want a flat section. Please note that these piers only work with Unitrack.
