Prototype Description: A Digital Decoder is a small piece of electronics installed in model railroad items, to start with in locomotives, to which a unique ID or address is assigned, and that allows to control the said item from a centralized control station using its address.
Thus it becomes possible to control individually multiple locomotives running on the same power district, which is not possible on analog layouts.
Though several digital systems exist, the most predominant is the Digital Command Control or DCC that was invented in the 1980's by Lenz Elektronik GmbH and adopted in 1993 as a NMRA standard.

Road Name History:
KATO U.S.A. was established in 1986, with the first U.S. locomotive model (the GP38-2, in N-Scale) released in 1987. Since that time, KATO has come to be known as one of the leading manufacturers of precision railroad products for the modeling community. KATO's parent company, Sekisui Kinzoku Co., Ltd., is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.
