Features Lionel's Legacy and MTH's DCS Systems.
With this book you will understand how command control works, select the best system for your layout, connect transformers and system components, operated trains and accessories with a handheld controller, run multiple locomotives at the same time and use DCS and TMCC on the same layout.
