Is it possible to go from one block controlled by one DCC system to another block controlled by another system?
TIA

Yes and no.

Once you get to the other system the other command station would somehow have to automatically acquire the address to continue the running.

You'd have to have the given address set to the same speed step on both systems. Also, I would have some concerns about bridging the gap, should the two system outputs be out-of-phase (which is almost a certainty).
To "call a spade a spade" is to speak honestly and directly about a topic, specifically topics that others may avoid speaking about due to their sensitivity or embarrassing nature. The Oxford English Dictionary records a more forceful variant, "to call a spade a bloody shovel", attested since 1919.
