|DCC - Digital Command Control|
|Digital Command Control (DCC) is a system which allows multiple model railway locomotives to be operated on the same track at the same time. It allows much greater control over model trains, more operational features and simpler layout wiring. Each locomotive is fitted with a small electronic unit called a mobile decoder which allows it to receive and be controlled by signals sent through the tracks. The base unit which sends out the signals onto the track often has a number of hand-held controllers attached to it, each of which can control one or more locomotives.||The
