    I found this article extremely interesting. I have ESU decoders on a Digitrax layout controlled by Traincontroller Gold. I would like to try using Railcom with the Marco unit connected to loconet.
    However will it work? Do I need an additional booster connected that will see the Railcom? and if so what will I need.
    Any guidance would be very helpful.

    How differently would this work if I have the ECoS and ECoSdetector with the 4 Railcom aware blocks ?

    • Hi John, I am not aware of the level of support for the ecos and train ids in traincontroller, best place to look at are the TC forums or FAQs I think!

    Could you please be so kind to advise, does ECoS itself support Railcom over its standard LAN connection? Also, I would like to have your comments regarding the some connection.. I already have DR5088RC and waiting for Ecoslink/LocoNet converter, with hoping that ECoS will support this combination.
    I will appreciate any reply!
    Thank you!

    • Hi!
      Well the Ecoes does support Railcom indirectly through its lan: it does send information in the egos protocol to the pc software of your choosing, of course this software must be compatible with ecos fully, by supporting train ID information from the ecos.
      There were some limitations on the ecoslink, I suggest you check the ecoslink documentation as I am not up to date on the latest updates I’m sorry!

        Thank you!
        I have checked the information regarding the converter – nothing. By the way, I ordered of Piko, it is cheaper and has 4 Loconet ports. Seems, I have to wait to test it. There is no any information about this combination. I certainly will let you know when will be tested…
        Thank you!
