Whether you're using traditional, direct current (DC) cab control or the latest Digital Command Control (DCC) System, Wiring Your Model Railroad will guide you through the steps of planning and wiring a layout.

With more and more modelers choosing DCC, this book will help demystify how it works; clarify the advantages of DCC and what makes it different from DC control; and, teach you how to convert an existing DC layout to DCC.  Step-by-step instructions and photos are coupled with clear, color-coded diagrams that will guide you through the process of wiring a complete layout or just troubleshooting problem areas.

Wiring Your Model Railroad not only explains the basics of electricity and how to work with electrical and electronic components, but it will also teach you how to:
Avoid short circuits with reverse loops and wyes
Control switch machines and power turnouts
Install a Digital Command Control system
Solder wires, track, and various components
Use block-detection devices and signals
Wire a layout with traditional DC dual cab-control.
