dear Mr.Bachmann,
Is it true if you have a DCC equipped thomas the tank engine and friends locomotives and use your command control, is it really easy to change the decoders address?
                                  Sincerely,
                                 
                                           Alex Wittman, future model railroader.

Dear Alex,
No, my Sodor display is analog. However, the folks at Carstens Publications have put DCC in the Thomas characters.
Have fun!

It is pretty easy to program a new address in a decoder, change CV's, such as braking, and acceleration delay, depending on which system. EZ command does not support CV programming, and can only program 1 digit locomotive addresses.
