      You might be interested to know that the advice to reduce top speed was
      given to me by 2 of the leading decoder manufacturers!!

      I think you've confused the Gaugemaster track cleaner with their other
      products. They make (or rebadge at least) a DCC controller system. The
      track cleaner is not good to mix with DCC indeed.

      I'd strongly disagree with Tony about his advice to just use lower
      speeds however. A lot of DCC chips use feedback and pulse control off an
      H-Bridge. In that situation driving slowly means 12v less often *NOT* 8v
      so I'd go with the voltage dropping circuit. Better safe than smoked.
