UPDATE: I know the Zimo controller is spelt Zimo – I put one too many ‘Ms’ in when writing it out in the video.
With so many DCC controllers and decoders on the market, and so many people reporting problems with them all – I thought I’d take an investigative look into this, Columbo style! Haha – In all seriousness however, it’s a very important issue that affects the majority of people into model railways. Part 2 (If you’d like to see one) will be all about the decoders themselves. Please do leave a comment, share your experiences with us all and if you’d like me to check out any of your videos and/or give them increased exposure – let me know! Thank you
