Command Stations (sometimes called a Central Station) are the very heart of a Digital Command Control system. They receive commands from a throttle network (such as Digitrax's Loconet), process them, and decide if it needs to make a standardized digital packet to send to all the decoders on a DCC system. They don't do the actual work; they tell other things to do the work. Please see command stations for full details.
