Bognor Regis Model Railway Club - Articles

Over the coming months we intend to publish a number of articles by club members relating to their areas of expertise (which are many), to reviews of specific products and to any other items of modelling or prototypical interest.

Some of these articles will be here, in the public section of the website, while others will be restricted to members only as an additional benefit of their membership.

Public Articles

This article is a preliminary discussion of this new, and relatively cheap, way of opening DCC up to computer and smartphone control.
