practice, a throttle sends a coded signal to the command station
which interprets the signal, translates it to something the
decoder in the target locomotive can interpret, and sends
this out over the track power system.
addition, a computer interface may be used to control
trains and special effects automatically. The actual computer
interface is a device which connects a Windows computer to
the DCC network, thus allowing the computer to act as a throttle
to control DCC devices and also to intercept messages over
the network for the detection of trains, position of turnouts,
and the like.
