No. of trains per systemgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Wiring for DCC : One Thread
Sir: I have a Lenz DCC system. Now how many Locomotives will one Conroller handle?

I actually recommend only running one locomotive per controller. The controller can handle more (depending on the controller) - but the operator (yourself) probably can't. Everytime I tried running more than one train, something bad happens.
If you were wondering how many locomotives your system will handle, the answer it's that it depends on which system you have, and how much current your locomotives draws.
