PSC, Precision Scale Models, are very fine quality brass moders. I own 3 M-2's' and a Y-3a. It's been a number of years since they imported a Y-6b. PCM, Precision Craft Models, are a part of Broadway LTD and are similar models. There Y-6b's have been produced with or without sound/DCC. I have 3 of their first offering. 2 with sound/DCC and 1 without.

Thanks Nigel,

I thought that BLI and yes PSC was the same!
The BLI Paragon has the sound and dcc but PSC Y6b's have no sound?

As far as I can tell, Precision Scale (PSC) has not done a Y6b recently, nor ever offered one with sound. And if you found a PSC Y6b, it would probably cost four or five times the price of a BLI model.

Do you mean Precision Craft (PCM)?

The PCM and BLI models are the same thing - same tooling, etc. BLI appears to have dropped the PCM brand entirely, which appears to be a workaround of a contract with QSI. PCM models had LokSound decoders, the BLI Y6b has a BLI sound decoder. There are probably no new PCM Y6b models out there. The BLI one sounds great. I have not heard the PCM one.

Any comments on the better HO Y6b for one to buy, BLI or Precision Scale?

Best sound, pulling etc?

Thanks for any replys.
