PS DCC system output to your rails is neither DC or AC voltage. Said meters do not give you an accurate reading.  It is DCC.  You need a meter that can read DCC. 

To be accurate, it is some form of AC or DC (pulsed). No way around it.

A serial data transmission who's signal is based on the frequency of a change in signal is more accurate. It piggy backs the motor power or via. Radio waves.

 

Correct. The DCC signal is AC.   Its not a pretty and stable sine wave that one sees coming out of the wall receptacle, but it is absolutely AC.
