DCC onboard - Bachmann's term for having a decoder already installed.

DCC equipped - general term for having a decoder already installed.

DCC ready - NMRA term meaning the wiring is arranged to make installing a decoder relatively easy.  This may include having an 8 pin NMRA socket or having wiring brought out to solder pads or having the motor and wheels connected by wires that are easy to separate.
