When published in 2007 "Aspects of Modelling: Digital Command Control" was one of the first books to address this important new technology for railway modellers. Reprinted twice, the book has been the essential introductory guide for all modellers using DCC. This new updated edition has been designed to encompass all recent changes in this technology, is certain to be popular with keen modellers wishing to master the latest developments. DCC has been one of the most radical developments in the model railway hobby in recent years, and the equipment is comparatively expensive and comprehensive. Modellers are increasingly embracing DCC as it enables one to operate each locomotive on a model layout individually using computer technology, making the whole operation far more realistic. Special effects such as sound can also be added with DCC and most proprietary models come with DCC compatibility. It is also possible to upgrade older models to take advantage of this new technology. This useful new book explains the basic principles of everything the modeller needs to know to adopt DCC into a new layout or to add it to an existing one. It will also include a detailed chapter on new developments such as sound, steam and smoke as well as a summary of potential advanced use and programming. Areas covered include: what is DCC; how to convert to DCC; base stations, boosters and cabs; locomotive decoders; wiring for DCC; connecting up for first use; glossary of technical terms; trouble shooting guide; and, guide to manufacturers, suppliers and equipment.
