This is not up for debate. When you think of homeward bound hobbies to preoccupy boys and men of all ages, one famous hobby always comes to mind. That hobby is the building of table level train tracks and the inventorying of regular train sets, from truly old classics to modern bullet speed snake like automatons. But many men and boys can only dream of such hobbies. There is no debate about this, but building and keeping train sets is a rather expensive hobby.
The more successful drivers of this wonderful hobby are always prepared to make the necessary financial sacrifices and sacrifices of time, so much so that the hobbyist could be isolated from loved ones and locked behind closed doors for many hours. The successful hobbyist takes care of all intricacies. He knows full well that he needs to put a lot of effort into creating the most sound dcc command station. Because of his dedication and claim to fame among fellow hobbyists, he will be one of the highlights of any convention held around the country at certain times of the year.
DCC is the acronym used for digital command control. It could not have been expressed any better than this. In this challenging hobby there really is only one stationmaster and the bigger the table landscape, the more challenging the ability to command and control all the different rail networks and manage the speeds at which these model trains will be traveling. Even though this is merely a fantasy environment, train track derailments are still a big possibility and it takes considerable expense and time to repair or replace damaged tracks and cars.
Not that the dedicated craftsman would mind this. It is all part and parcel of the hobby.
