Hi Charley

Another reason for switching off running on analog is to use the "Brake on DC" feature most decoders have.
This enables a Locomotive to slow down (at the deceleration rate set in the decoder) to a stop when entering a special section of track (isolated from the rest of the track) BitSwitch do some controls for automated stopping and starting
you can find details here

Hi LF

so many questions


The Isolated section has to allow the full train to stop (at the decoders braking distance ) Wiggy has this setup on his Thomas N layout , I'm sure it is his post

-So Full train + Braking distance . It is still under DCC control but it has stopped until it gets a command to resume normal speed (Dc generator off) will the accelerate to set speed again

The DC is generated by a circuit (US$25)
You also need a Reed switch or similar to detect the Loco before it reaches the braking point in the Isolated section

No buzzing

Regards
