The local N Scale club, SANTRAK, works with the local HobbyTown USA [San Antonio, TX] to put on Model Railroad Clinics. I have been asked to do an Introduction to DCC clinic on February 23, 2013. The clinics generally start at 10 AM and end before noon.
I plan on doing a simple overview of DCC, what it has to offer, and what it's limitations are. I hope to have systems from Bachmann, CVP, Digitrax, MRC and NCE available to show off on an N Scale T-Trak layout from SANTRAK as well as a simple loop of track with some of my Large Scale. I do not know if my Z Scale will be ready by then, there seems to be a back order on the track I need.
If you live within reasonable driving distance and plan to attend I would be happy to have you post here some ideas on what you would want covered. There will be at least one follow up clinic on Decoder Programing with possible future clinics to cover areas like Consists and Speed Matching.
The third clinic on Consisting and Speed Matching is April 27 at HobbyTown in San Antonio starting at 10:30 AM. We will talk in general terms and cover how Bachmann, CVP and NCE handle their versions of Consisting. There will also be a short section on 'Kick Start' and slow speeds.
In August we are planing to do a general Decoder Install clinic covering several different scales.
