If your new to the hobby you have probably come across people talking about DCC and DC so you might be asking: “What is the difference between DCC and DC model railway’s?”
Basically DC and DCC is the difference between analogue and digital,
- DC is the classic analogue model railway with no sounds or working lights in locomotives, this generally requires a fair bit more wiring for isolation sections of track and accessories etc.
- DCC can be a fully digital system where everything is controlled from a digital controller, or even your smart phone via chips in the locomotives and accessories, this can include things like sound, working lights, remote signals and a whole host of other things.
Basic starter sets can be bought in either DC or DCC to help you get into the system you want to use. Plus there’s a vast and ever-growing network of specialist and knowledgeable people out there ready to help and guide you, no matter what system you use.
