MTH locomotives and DCC

I'm new to DCC, having found a great deal on a Model Rectifier Prodigy Explorer last week. I have a small HO oval so this should be enough right now.

Train involved was reportedly the 659, the 5:44 Harlem Line express from Grand Central to Southeast. Thoughts and prayers to those affected.
