If a loco has two cabs, then to change cabs switch to internal camera, press CTRL/C, and if desired switch to external camera. This will not change control to a different loco.

If a train has a powered rolling stock vehicle (a loco, etc) on each end, then to change control to the other end switch to external camera, select the loco which is to have control either by clicking on it or by pressing the + or - keys on the main keyboard, and if desired switch to internal camera. Don't press CTRL/C unless the selected loco has two cabs and you wish to select the other cab.

AFAIK these operations are the same in DCC and CAB modes.

HTH, John

John, if I remember (& I'll test it later) I've tried CTRL + C, and for TRS2004 it didn't do anything, but it does work in UTC.

CTRL/C works fine in TRS2004 for me. You must be in internal camera mode though.

ALT+C for TRS04/06 (and I'm guessing TC as well) :)

CTRL/C works fine in TRS2004 for me.It doesn't seem to work for me, but I've found that it's either Alt C, or Alt + C

PS: What does Alt mean (or similar abbeviations)

Many many apologies, it is ALT/C. I must be getting old :(

CTRL = Control, nearly always used in combination with another key. This key dates back to paper tape and Teletype days.

ALT = Alternate. Can be used in combination with another key, or as a key in its own right, although often as a prefix. For example in many programs ALT F S (three separate key presses) will save a file.
