To clarify slightly - any brand of decoder in the locomotives is compatible with any control system. DCC is a common standard for communication between the command system and decoders.All DCC is compatible. You can use any brand of controller.
And you should have added. That, You Can't Fix Stupid.Never be afraid to ask questions!
A wise person once told me there was only 1 stupid question... The one you should have asked, but didn't. I have since added 2 more: The one you ask too quickly, and the one you ask over and over.
That's my 2 cents. And it also reminds me of one of my favorite sayings. There are no stupid questions, but there are stupid people who ask questions, LOL! (this is not meant to reflect on the OP, just light hearted comedy)
Well, that's true of every DCC system I'm aware of: if you don't want to be constantly punching in numbers to swap locos, you need one throttle per train.Let me throw out this little tidbit as well . . . . . DON'T throw away your DC controller, I was told on here and verified by reading the indruction manual that DigiTrax DCC controllers can accept DCs as "jump throttles" so you can have up to 3 trains running (DCC and 2 jumps) without having to be punching numbers back and forth, each controller will have it's own train to run
