                                                                   Last update March 29th, 2018

 A note to our valued customers:

We were pleased with the turn-out at the Mid-America Toy & Train Show on March the 18th, and a special thanks to my wife for her hard work in helping with set up the morning of the show.  We normally set up on Saturday afternoon/evening; but because of a conflict of schedules, we were not able to do so this time.  However, everything went like clock-work and we were set up and ready to go on time.  I want to thank the manufacturers for their support for sending updated literature and products in time for the show.  The only hold out was NCE. They suggested that we download their on-line catalog and print off how ever many copies we thought we might need for the show, consequently they were the only dcc manufacturer not represented at our booth.  A couple of folks asked if NCE was still in business, because of the lack of representation at our booth. I explained why, and yes they were very much still in business and I added, yes we are a dealer of theirs and very supportive of NCE's product line.

  We feel that the customer needs a hard copy of promotional information so he,or she can make notes for future reference.  All-in-all, we were able to secure future order sales for AHD, ESU LokSound, Train Control System, Soundtraxx/Blackstone models, Zimo, and many others who offered us tools to promote their products.  We felt the turn out was much better than expected and had a great time meeting and talking with folks about the advantages of using digital command control.  I always enjoy speaking with the very young, present and future, model railroaders.  They seem to pick up on the concept of digital command control very fast.

My thanks to all of those folks who attended the show.

Ray Uhlich - President DCC, Inc.

                                             Meet Joey who was the proud winner of the famous Southern Pacific's

                                    GS-4 streamline Northern class locomotive.  He joined in the locomotive 

                                    give-a-way at the table of Digital Command Central. 

                                    We are as excited as he appears to be about Joey's interest in the model 

                                    railroad hobby.  We welcome young folks like Joey into the hobby, so it 

                                   will stay alive and well for generations to come.

                    The July 2010 NPRHA convention held in Spokane Washington was a

                    huge success.  There were all kinds of activities for the attendees and

                    their families.  Presentations of all kinds were happening throughout

                    each of the five-day event.  Ray Uhlich from Digital Command Central,

                    Inc. presented a mini-seminar on Saturday.  It too was one of the

                    high points of the convention.  Several manufacturers offered

                    exciting door prizes.  In addition to door prizes, Digital Command

                    Central, Inc. offered a Digitrax Zephyr system as a raffle prize.

                    Upon completion of the seminar, Ray was asked to attend next years

                    NPRHA convention and offer a DCC mini-seminar for the folks

                    attending the 2011 convention in Minnesota. Ray accepted without

                    hesitation.

 

                    Here Ray is preparing for his "Looking at DCC from the layout's eye"

                    approach.  Ray says too much emphsis is placed on looking at the

                    layout from the command station.  Most of the problems occur on the

                    layout due to errors in judgment, and/or workmanship.

 

Each seminar attendee received a valuable packet of information

to use as tools for troubleshooting and maintaining DCC equipment.

A few snap shots of Ray's "How To" - DCC seminar at Union Station on 10/17/09 taken by Jack Rosenfield.  Thank you Jack.


Digital Command Central, Inc. extends a special thanks to those folks who attended the seminar at Union Station.  The seminar had to be moved to the Arthur Stillwell meeting room directly below the Town Hall meeting room, because of last minute A/V system technical difficulties.  The meeting room served adequately except for the lack of lighting which was made up for by additional spot & flood light fixtures.  Ray addressed the major DCC systems and passed around samples of each so the attendees could get a close, hands-on look of each system. The purpose of this seminar was to understand general conditions concerning DCC systems.  Ray's explanation of the elements of a satisfactory DCC system included tips on how to avoid existing and future problems with wiring and track installations. In addition, he spoke about test systems and devices which help to alleviate DCC electrical continuity problems. At seminar's end, there were door prizes presented to attendees whose names were drawn from a bowl by Stu Stewart.  One prize was a DVD offered by Tony Cook.  The other, a Tony's Trains' DCC digital voltage/amp meter complete with three load devices (1, 1.5, and 2.25 AMP). This combination of load test instruments will come in mighty handy.  They were offered by Digital Command Central, Inc.  The positive comments from the survey sheets turned in indicated that the information and material covered during the seminar was well received.  Digital Command Central offers survey sheets at each seminar for the purpose of obtaining information from attendees.  This information is then scrutinized in an effort to improve and streamline future seminar activities.
