Default RE: Battery/DCC Cost Question

My biggest concern with controlling trains now is how long will the system be available so that in 10 years I can add control to another new engine purchase.
I had the Aristocraft 27 mhz system and now it is out of production as is the 75 mhz system.
So, I no longer trust a single source of electronics, thus I went with DCC for future expansions.
I have an older LGB MTS system, low end of the DCC capabilities, but it works.
Also I have the Zimo system which is awesome.
There are many manufacturers of decoders and also command stations so if one or two disappear, no harm done.
