- Dec 11, 2008John,
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,
