      John,
      I will second the motion. Jeff is a whiz bang when it comes to DCC, but
      unfortunately for him, he is unable to dummy down when he talks to this dumb
      bunny about electrical things. It's not that I couldn't learn, I don't have
      the time to learn it from the ground up. I wish I had taken electronics in
      high school, then I could more easily understand where Jeff is coming from.

      Anyway, Jeff is wonderfully talented with this DCC, but I too need a "DCC
      Primer for Dumb Dumbs"

      I'd like to reserve the second copy of whatever is out there to help us
      electrically challenged :o)

      No extra electrons in this brain housing,
      Loren
