Out of 143 pages, only 12 are dedicated to track building and control and they are mostly photo examples. There does appear to be some very useful tips though.
There is very little explanation of how DCC works let alone what it does. There is however a good comprehensive treatment on installing decoders but again, nothing on how they work or how the controller communicates with them.
With a title that includes "Step by Step" I assumed it was for beginners- something that teaches the "nuts and bolts" of building a model railway. Now it's necessary to buy another book or search through internet forums for answers. Not too happy about that.
this book covers all the basics in an orderly fashion without skipping over anything crucial or going into way too much depth for a beginner, somehow it strikes the perfect balance
