DCC Decoders

TrackShack  >  00 Gauge Railways >  DCC Decoders

Digital Command Control (DCC) is a system to operate model railways digitally. When equipped with DCC, locomotives on the same electrical section of track can be independently controlled.

Both the Bachmann Dynamis and Hornby ‘Elite’ digital units allow for more control of Loco's and their specific features such as speed, lighting, direction and sound.

Where available we stock locos that are factory DCC fitted by the manufacturer. Most locos that are not factory DCC fitted are DCC ready, for these you will find on this page the appropriate decoder chips to purchase separately for DIY fitting.

Please remember to check postal charges with other dealers, ours is no more than £4.00 for as many items as you want with Guaranteed Fast UK delivery.

TrackShack OO Gauge Decoder Fitting Service


We will fit the most apropriate decoder chip to any DCC ready loco purchased from us. Please simply add this item to your cart when purchasing the loco. This fitting charge includes the decoder chip of our choice.

Please note that any locomotive requiring 6 pin decoder fitting that has been incorrectly requested as 8/21 pin, WILL be charged at the increased 6 pin rate. This is due to the increased cost of 6 pin decoders relative to 8/21 pin versions.
