Hi,

I have been building a system, as described in:  this topic.

I have built a range of hardware accessories, as described:  here.

I have also been integrating everything to run under JMRI/Open LCB. 
I had to build a custom LCB gateway, to tie JMRI to all my custom hardware.
This was a large task, but it is now running.

:glad:

One of the more difficult problems, was learning how to configure/use JMRI itself. 
As I am using MTH/DCS locos,
I was expecting to "reverse engineer" DCS, and add that to JMRI. 

At this point I think it would be better to use DCC/deadrail, at least to get started,
so as to avoid the steep JMRI learning curve, while coding/debugging DCS drivers. 

Once that works, I can decide whether to bother with DCS. 

I can always use the DCC hardware for a freight yard switcher,
which would benefit from the smaller electronics package.
(That MTH controller is big)

So the question is:

What would be a good candidate for a DCC controller, run via WiFi,
that would install nicely into a G scale boxcar with batteries?
