It is a bi-directional data bus that can send and receive data.  Since it is an NMRA Standard, you are not confined to one manufacturer'​s products. Any manufacturer can make LCC compatible devices.  ​+[[:​lcb:​start&#​layout_command_control_lcc|Layout Command Control]] (LCC) s a system for controlling all the functions on your layout that don’t have to do with how fast the locomotive is moving -- things like signals, or sounds, or passenger car lighting. ​ LCC is NMRANet, just under a different name.  LCC is designed as a separate, generic control bus which is positioned to take the load off your throttle bus.
