Aspects of Modelling - Digital Command Control - 2nd Edition


Author: Ian Morton - Forum profile





ISBN: 978-0-7110-3499-0

Pages: 80

RRP: £14.99





Some three and a half years ago Ian published the first edition of this book at a time when there were few books on the subject aimed at the UK modeller. There have been significant developments within the field in the intervening time and this book brings the story up to date in providing introductory basics and moving the reader forward from that point.


Chapters include:

Introduction to DCC

The Myths and Misconceptions

So where did DCC come from?


Converting to DCC

Making the change, The next step

Something to avoid


Command stations, boosters and cabs

Multiple controllers


Accessory Decoders


Wiring for DCC

Power districts


First use


Advanced Use

Tailoring decoder performance

Double heading


All sections are easy to read, understand and interpret into real life scenarios with many useful reference points and clarifications; an example of which is shown below. Many people moving into DCC will find the illustrations on fitting decoders to different types of rolling stock useful including the often feared split chassis.





All pages are clearly printed, well set out and of bright appearance with colour images and illustrations used throughout the 80 pages.


I can recommend this revised and up to date book to all modellers considering DCC and moving on from the first steps.
