Updated Jan 2019 to add Zephyr Express, delete Zephyr Added some NCE systems: May be incorrect as NCE is very quiet about their system's specifications and capabilities. Almost nothing is known about the NCE Twin, and how it compares to the Zephyr.


Is the "Loco Number Readback" column refering to reading the locomotive number on the mainline or reading the locomotive number on the programming track?

I ask because I'm not aware of a system that can read locomotive numbers back on the mainline without optional equipment.

Lenz systems requre an LRC120

Digitrax systems require a BDL168 and an RX4 to do this.
