This product has been replaced by the Chief II 5 Amp (CFII5A) and is no longer available. Click here to view the CFII5A.

The Chief Starter set contained a DCS100 command station and a DT100 throttle.  These sets included a premium decoder of the appropriate scale for N or HO.

In addition the Chief starter set was available as a Radio Equipped Set.

Note early version Chief Starter Sets shipped with DCS100's with stereo clips as shown here.  Later versions used the screw terminal version of the DCS100.
