Dcc Equip

Can you control on model railroad with a personal computer without a DCC equipped locomotive?

I was wondering if I can control the trains on my O scale or HO scale model railroad without having the locomotives DCC equipped. Is there any software and/or hardware out there that would allow me to do this?
I was thinking that the computer could connect to a regular DC control that alters the electricity to the track, so you could control the train that way. Is there anything out there that could do this?

And this series is amazing - I included the beginning - it is a 9 part series and printable .pdf files
