I learned today that Tam Valley Depot has ceased sales and production of their DRS-1 dead rail system for use with
NCE DCC systems. Obviously, DRS-1 was a competitor to the DelTang dead rail gear I sell, but I’m still sorry to see that they’ve made the decision to pull the plug (so to speak) on their product. DRS-1 offered what I thought was a fairly well thought out product for use with existing DCC systems that was actually small enough to fit into HO and small On30 locos — of of their demo units was a Bachmann Forney, and all the electronics fit within the shell.
Tam Valley will continue to produce and sell their lines of turnout control systems, Frog Juicers, and other DCC-related accessories.
