Like in any DCC system, you need to install decoders in your locomotives to run them in a digital way. TMWDCC follow the NMRA Standards and RPs, so you can use any NMRA compatible decoder you can find. The system is tested together with all the major brands of decoders, and they run just fine on this system. I have tested with Lenz, Digitrax, Roco, ZTC, MRC, Soundtrax, Arnold, NCE, SystemOne, EasyDCC, Zimo, Kuhn, Conrad, Völkner, LGB, Vehn and also with some homebrew decoders. For info on the commercial decoders, go to their home pages, and if you would like to build your own decoders, go to the links I show hereunder.
