Let Mr. DCC show you the ABCs of DCC!

Engineers Seat 400 x 600

The DCC University arose out of the questions raised through almost 9 years of operating Litchfield Station. Bruce developed it from a small installation business to the second largest DCC specialty shop in the world. During that time Bruce developed a lot of intellectural property that was on the Litchfield Station page. When he sold the business, he moved much of that information here and he has added to it since.

What is DCC?

 DCC stands for Digital Command Control. It is a way of having power continuiously on the track. This way, rolling stock can have lights and sound even when they are standing still.

Data is sent over the track from the base unit to a decoder located inside the locomotive or car, telling it what to do when.

A site redesign in April 2019 changed names of some pages and the structure of the site.

So, your old bookmarks probably will not not work. Sorry.

It is a good habit to come to the home page and renavigate, anyway. I've provided a search box to help.

What remains here is data about DCC - mostly my opinions.
