Using DCC controls on your layout really enhances the operation of your trains, but there is still one weak point in the system, and that is the locomotive still has to pick up not only the power from the rails, but also the digitized micro-signals being sent to the on board decoder from your DCC controller.
If your track is dirty, this can cause some stuttering in your loco operation and maybe even a break in these micro-signals which can cause your decoder to just shut down, or worse, refuse to accept any new commands you try to send to it. A sure sign of dirty track is flickering locomotive headlights.
LaBelle has studied this problem, and now is introducing LaBelle #105 “DCC Track Conditioner”. Just clean your track with this product, and leave a micro-coating on the rails of LaBelle #105 and it will dramatically improve your DCC reliability. (We have done testing on private layouts with this new product and everyone who has used it, has been impressed by the improvement in Locomotive control.
