Bob,

I have replaced the plastic wheels with Bachmann metal ones and put Bachmann coupler's on them.  This works on most but not all of the Aristo cars I have.

You should not have any problems with what you plan to do.

Which DCC system are you using?  What scale trains are you running.  What is the current draw needed?

Most systems will handle several locomotives on the same or different tracks.  With the answers to the above questions we will be able to help you.

Most manufactures of DCC decoders have a Decoder Selector on their sites.  You enter the Scale, Loco Manufacture, Loco Model and they give you a recommended decoder.

There are many good web sites to learn about the basics of DCC:

NCE has what they call the Mini Panel that will do what you want with any of the NCE systems.   You will need some block detectors which they also sell.

If you wish to do it with a computer they also have a USB interface.

A number of DCC systems have available USB or other interfaces to connect computers to them.  NCE, Digitrax, Lenz, and ESU I know have them.

In order to help we need more information.

Which locomotives do you have?  Do you plan to have an indoor or outdoor layout?  Will both trains be running on the same loop with passing tracks or most of the time on separate loops?  How much experience do you have making changes to model locomotives?

What is a reasonable amount of money for you to spend?  Do you have other Large Scale modelers in you area that might come over to run their trains?  What do they use?

Two of us in the area I live have tried to get to the page both yesterday and today.  We also just tried to get to the main estore page and have not been able to get in.  We are both on the same ISP and had no problems getting to download last years catalog.

Are we the only ones having the problem?
