    B. ~~~~~~ DESCRIPTION: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~|

    * This video #812 shows an NCE DCC "Mini-Panel" and "Power Cab" controlling a 3-Track DCC Automatic Passing Siding, that’s controlling 3 largescale trains.
    * Please note that the 3 “delay” statements in the commands for the 3 trains, can be individually adjusted to cause any or all of the 3 trains to travel MULTIPLE LAPS around the loop.
    ~~
    * Note that this display could be done in almost ANY gauge (N, HO, S, O, & LargeScale) . . . . . as long as the locos use standard NMRA DCC decoders, and you use the proper turnout accessory controller.

    * This video #811 shows an NCE DCC "Mini-Panel" and "Power Cab" controlling a DCC Automatic Passing Siding, that’s controlling 2 largescale trains.
    * Note that the 2 trains can go the same direction, or opposite directions. Also, a “delay” statement in the commands can be adjusted to cause either train to travel multiple ‘laps’ around the loop, before the other train runs.
    * Note that this display could be done in almost ANY gauge (N, HO, S, O, & LargeScale) . . . . . as long as the locos use standard NMRA DCC decoders, and you use the proper turnout controller.

    Note: For more details about the MINI-PANEL itself, please see previous video #804 (links provided below).

  3. This three-part 2009 YouTube video featuring DCC-BitSwitch designer and owner Fred Hughes, gives an overview of both DCC-BitSwitch and DCC systems in general. Fred talks about the 3 ways to automatically brake (stop) a DCC train: 1) analog DC, 2) set speed zero command, and 3) asymmetric DCC. Fred also discusses his experiences and reasons for preferring North Coast Engineering (NCE) DCC systems and some advantages of Lenz decoders.
