I have operated on a couple HO layouts with DCC and moentum and it
is more realistic on response but found many new operators are not
used to that. Not saying badly but most are used to toy train knobs
where you turn the knob and get immediate response.
This added a new level of running the train since the Engineer would
need to plan his running more and not expect to race up to a car on
a spur and stop on a dime. It was a new operating challenge and was
nice to run with.
Would I suggest it maybe not. Would I setup my engines to operate
this way I do not know. I think that the larger scale trains will
come with more real life momentum to deal with but adding a touch
more through the throttle could really put a twist on things. Would
be neat to try though!!!!
