    Norton, I will jump in here and offer the same advice to you that I give to everyone. All of these systems are great and offer great features, but I would suggest that you find out what system is popular in your area and go with that one. As was already mentioned, as time goes on, you may find yourself interacting with others in your area and it's nice to have a throttle that works on their system, and visa versa. More importantly though, as you jump into this, you will have questions and problems and it's nice to have people near by who are familiar with your system and can offer help.

    I am a Digitrax user and I do like their system, but just about everyone around here uses Digitrax. We hold weekly op sessions at various homes in the area and it's nice to be able to bring your own throttle. We can also help each other out when problem develope or gremlins show up at an op session!

      Norton,

      I agree with what's been said, and especially with what Mark just posted. Note the last sentence in his first paragraph, above. If your friends and neighbors are all using System X, then go with System X. If they're all System Y, go with System Y. There is brilliant engineering in all of these possibilities, but your local support network is important.
