After a decent amount of research and picking the brains of knowledgeable people, I ordered this cheap oscilloscope.  

 

Here's a YouTube video review of it. I'll post a little review of my own after I learn how to use it. 🙂

Amazing that anyone can make and sell any scope for $34.

 

My day job is designing circuit bits and pieces that go into oscilloscopes like these:

We sell them for a bit more than $34.

 

I suspect the ones that come from your bits and pieces are a bit more capable 🙂

 

I m ay try one of these cheapos just to measure things like DCC track voltage and stuff.  We'll see.  Waiting to hear from Gavin on it.

I received the scope today. It's nice and small. Feels fairly robust, and comes with a few different ways to attach in order to take a reading. I don't really know how to use it yet so I can't comment on anything technically.

 

It doesn't come with a power supply. One of the reasons it's so cheap. Fortunately I happen to have a 9V PS with a fitting socket in my big tub of power supplies.
