From background information on the technology itself to layout wiring; taking in decoders, hand controllers, wireless and many practical modelling projects, Neil Burkin offers a comprehensive introduction to Digital Command Control [DCC] for the beginner and experienced modeller alike.The book emphasises the benefits of DCC technology as a model railway control system and offers practical advice on the choice of systems, applying the technology to a layout, how to use it to enhance layout operations, and how it can be used to overcome practical difficulties with operations such as banking, double-heading, lighting and sound. Technical jargon is avoided and clear descriptions of each project featured in the book will remove the mystery surrounding DCC. Many of the modelling projects may be adapted for almost any modelling situation and are supported by over 400 excellent colour photographs.A comprehensive guide to Digital Command Control for the beginner and experienced modeller alike.Emphasises the benefits of DCC technology and offers practical advice on the choice of sytems.Includes practical modelling projects which are supported by over 400 excellent colour photographs.Nigel Burkin is a railway modeller with over 20 years' experience and has hundreds of magazine articles to his credit.... was divided into nine sections controlled through double pole, double throw ( DPDT) switches to enable dual control. ...
