With DCC only the train assigned to the controller at the time will be under control, whilst other loco's can be sitting on the SAME track with any lighting and or sound options turned on, or indeed running. (Double-heading for example - using 2 loco's on the front of a train instead of one loco)
And 2 loco's in a single track siding for example.
You can move the front loco out of the siding whilst the other loco behind stays still.
With DC (again using the same example of 2 loco's in a single track siding) you'd need to cut the track (say half way along the siding) so the bufferstop end of the siding could be isolated from the entry end of the siding to move the front loco without moving the loco behind.
I hope that all makes sense.??
Sorry. Only got 5 hours last night. My brain is rebelling.
Been looking at Cab Control for DC, which is a possibility.
DCC thought is all about cost of converting my locos, they are mainly Lima locos. Hence why im trying to learn soldering.
