Princess Royal pacifics - MikeMorant
Thank you for viewing my SmugMug photo galleries. I had a massive Fotopic presence until I saw 7 years of hard graft disappear around the u-bend of business inadequacy and have finally taken the plunge with SmugMug as the Image Hosting service.

Page 1 of 3 - Wireless DCC System for ?90 (using SPROG, Raspberry Pi and JMRI) - posted in DCC Discussion Topics (not questions): This weekend, I finally got the following cheap wireless DCC set-up working nicely: Although Im using a Sprog Nano and an SBoost, you could easily use a Sprog II which would bring the costs in at around £90.
