    I'm not sure that I understand what is meant by the term "feedback signal." I think he would need to run dcc to do this, and that dcc could do all that he wants to do easily. Regarding the question about a system wide feedback buss vs a separate buss for each power zone, I can only speak to the CVP Products Easy DCC system. They use a command station that is then connected to booster units to boost power to the trains. If a railroad is big enough, then they reccommend multiple booster units that are isolated from each other with each booster powering a power zone. All commands go through the command station, so in that case you would use one single feedback buss for the whole system. I think this is probably standard dcc practice, but I don't know about other dcc systems.
