Gaugemaster DCC is our own brand providing digital command control options for railway modellers.
DCC has revolutionised the way modellers operate their model railways. By fitting our Gaugemaster DCC controllers to locomotives, modellers are no longer restricted by where their trains can go - rather than being constrained by the electrics, they can go anywhere you send them.
Digital command control decoders can really bring your model railway to life. For example, they’ve opened up the possibility of sound-fitted locomotives, where the decoder is programmed with sounds that are activated by the motion of the train and delivered via an on-board speaker.
These sounds are incredibly realistic and are usually recorded from real life examples, adding an extra dimension to your model railway. Find out more about the world of digital command control.
At Gaugemaster, we’ve partnered with MRC, one of the USA’s leading controller manufacturers to bring you two main entry points to the world of DCC. The first of these is Prodigy Express, which is an ideal way to get started, but has enough features and power to run most model railways. The only feature it lacks is accessory control but if you operate this separately as many modellers choose to, it really isn’t a factor.
The second, and our bestselling Gaugemaster DCC system, is Prodigy Advance2. This ‘full fat’ system covers most bases when it comes to digital command control for railway modellers, including accessory control, and is highly regarded for its ease of use and reliability. Read more about the differences between the two Prodigy systems.
We also stock a full range of reliable and easy to use locomotive decoder products which offer great value for money. Our Ruby Series Decoders are available in many formats including 6, 8, and 21 pin versions. Find out more about programming locomotive decoders and accessory decoders.
