Mark’s Trains DCC / DC Locomotive Servicing Controller

The DCC / DC Locomotive Servicing Controller was designed through necessity of having to constantly swap between the DCC Command Station and a DC controller. We were testing locomotives and running them in on analogue DC control, and after a DCC conversion testing and programming the loco on the DCC system. This meant each controller had to be connected and disconnected from the test track so that both systems were isolated from each other.

The Locomotive Servicing Controller was initially designed and created back in 2016 as a box with two toggle switches and some wiring inside, and has seen constant daily use ever since without fail for 5 years. There is no longer a need for a DC controller and swapping plugs over, simply flicking a switch changes over from DCC to DC track power.

As part of our 5 year celebration of business, the design has been streamlined and manufactured as a PCB to allow other modellers and those in the fitting trade to make use of this controller. Some improvements have been made so that switching between DCC and DC can be achieved by activating a function key (F1) on your DCC controller instead of using a physical switch. A physical switch is still used to change between main track power and programming track power, this is a safe guard to prevent inadvertent programming of locomotives.
