I originally posted this under general information but a member suggested it would be better posted here and he is right :eek:

Has anyone used the HO scale Kato DCC turnout machines (29099 - R, 29098 - L)? I am thinking of using them instead of the Kato DC Turnout Machine to convert my manual turnouts but would like to find out what others have experienced.
Kato U.S. doesn't have any information on them other then placing the jumper wire to program them. I was wondering if you can also control them from a panel and if you can get position feedback from them.

Thanks all :)
