DCC and DC

I have a DC layout with blocks. Can I connect a DCC system on top of the DC and use either one I want? Not at the same time of course.

Sure. You'll need to connect the DCC to all the blocks of course.

Most new DCC devices will also run on DC. I've never done it though, so can't comment on that.
I'm not certain that it works that direction. You can run many new DCC units on DC, but I don't think you can run DC on DCC track.

The bachmann DCC ez-command controller allows you to connect a DC transformer to it and run DC trains that way. Not sure the Powercab has that option. Check the manual.
