Massoth Forum Shuts Down

Massoth announced they will close their German and English forums. Both forums were used to discuss topics related to Massoth products, and Massoth employees also published several DCC conversion guides on there.

The forums will be closed at 1 January 2016, but will remain in read mode for some time after.

As a replacement, Massoth launched the ‘Massoth Wiki’, which will be ‘a compilation of tutorials and tips & tricks‘.
