                                                                   February 2018 update

 A note to our valued customers:

Things are beginning to operate normal here at Digital Command Central.  It has been a long hard pull, but with your help and our efforts we've made it.  Ray will be contacting each customer as he completes their job(s).  Ray will be attending the Mid-America Train Show in March.  Hopefully, all pending jobs will be completed by then.  However, it is always a good idea to call Ray to confirm your locomotive, rolling stock, etc. is finished and will be available for pick up at the show.  The best phone number to reach Ray is, 913-302-7660.  This is the number for the phone he carries everywhere with him.  If your call goes directly to voice mail, either he is on another call with a customer, or his phone is turned off.  In either case, please leave a message, because he checks his voice mail frequently during the day, hence, he will return your call as soon as possible.  If your call doesn't require an immediate reply you can call 913-322-4223 which is the office number.

Thank you for your business.

                                             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.

“Notes for presentation”


“How To” - - DCC  10/17/’09

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.
