A. SUMMARY: This three-part 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. [======] B.
