ESU New Items 2022

ESU announced their New Items for 2022. There’s no official brochure (yet?), but the highlight for large scale is probably their new “CabControl” DCC system.

CabControl is basically the feature package that we know from their ECoS system, but in a compact DCC central station “brick” combined with their handheld controller.
