I'm new to DCC, so I'm sure I'll have lots of dumb questions, but here's my first one: I programmed a second loco today, and wow, neat, I can run two trains at once! But I'm puzzled - both locos are always 'on'. Without separate power districts, when I turn on the power both locos are 'activated', ie. for instance they all make the grumbling diesel sound. It seems with my NCE you can't really 'turn off' a locomotive? If I'm running one train, I really don't want all the locomotives in the yard to be rumbling and hissing. Are power districts a must or am I missing something?
