DCC is aging but has some advantages. Someone said it’s about 20 years old and is, do I dare say, old technology at this point. There’s something new blowing in the wind. You might want to check out the following: BlueRail Trains…who would of thought?
A letter from David Rees, BlueRail Trains.
Hello from BlueRail Trains.
Manufacturing has begun on the first BlueRail boards. This involves 2 weeks of PCB manufacturing followed by 3 weeks of assembly.
The boards are being manufactured locally and when completed will be available for US and Canada shipments on the BlueRail site for $75 (plus tax and shipping).
We will send a separate email out soon with information to those of you living outside US/Canada.
Next week we will send out some more comprehensive information about the first board to help you decide if it will suit your needs. We will also provide you with a link that will allow you to indicate if you are interested in purchasing the first board, as well as related harness and battery-connection options you may also be interested in. This will help us plan for release.
Look forward to more details next week.
The above memo is a copy of an E-mail sent to me by John A. Thanks John. We are both watching this closely to see what benefits it has to offer.
There are a number of us in the hobby looking for an easier option as compared to the present DCC systems. There’s just some features about the older DCC that is a source of frustration and I do talk about such here on four part series, DCC Friendly Switches or Not right here on BarstowRick.com.
The BlueRail Trains appears to be very promising. The question most of us will have is: Is it easier to program in all the CV’s, Speed Matching and Accessories? Or do we have to?
There’s more from BlueRail Trains.

BlueRail Trains: We will update this post as news arrives at BarstowRick.com.
My question is: Is this BlueRail without Bachmann? I think so.
