From background information on the technology itself to layout wiring; taking in decoders, hand controllers, wireless and many practical modeling projects, Neil Burkin offers a comprehensive introduction to Digital Command Control [DCC] for the beginner and experienced modeler alike. The book emphasizes 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 modeling projects may be adapted for almost any modeling situation and are supported by over 400 excellent color photographs. About the Author Nigel Burkin has been modeling British Rail Southern Region practice in 4mm scale for over 20 years, introducing Digital Command Control to his layout projects in 2001. Since then, he has explored many areas of the control system to see how it can benefit the modeler with respect to re-creating realistic railway operations. He is a published author, editor and photographer with hundreds of magazines articles under his belt together with three modeling titles. He is a resident of Scotland. 400 colour photographs
