Power for DCC Accessories

Gary Chudzinski
 

Can most all of the DCC accessories, stationary decoders, reversers, sensors, etc., operate from a DC power source or must DCC booster power be used? I'm not referring to control signals, but just the power needed for the accessories to function. The reason for this question is that of providing a DC Bus around a newly developing layout, or, will the forthcoming LCC system suffice for accessory power? And, how far away from production is that item?

Thanks,
Gary Chudzinski
