Hi,

I am looking for model train decoders, based on the Motorola protocol. I am
using a two rail system with DC motors. Since I moved from Europe to Canada
(ON) I am not familiar with the Canadian/US models. Any advise on different
kind of models and location to purchase is welcome.

Thanks in advance,

Fred

Welcome to North America. For two rail DC systems, most of us use DCC, and
NMRA standard for model train control. I have no idea what the "Motorola
Protocol" is. For information on DCC and some products to consider, see

http://www.loystoys.com
http://www.digitrax.com
http://www.ncedcc.com
http://www.tonystrains.com
http://www.nmra.org

There are a couple of good beginner books regarding DCC available from
Amazon or other booksellers:

Digital Command and Control - the Comprehensive guide to DCC
 by Ames, Friberg and Loizeaux

The Big Book of DCC (Digitrax)

rather rare in the Ca or US, however I would look for anything that says
"selling Marklin digital" or "selling Uhlenbrock" or "selling Loksound/ESU"
etc.

also lurking on the appropiate yahoo-groups a an option ... look for
example in http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MarklinBandG/
