    The perfect solution

    Posted by Carlo on Dec 9th 2019

    If you're converting a single locomotive or a fleet like me, Digitrax has taken the guess work out of it. The decoders are easy to install and are the cost effective alternative to some of the other systems out there. I have 55 locomotives and all of them have Digitrax decoders!

    Excellent Equipment

    Posted by Rob on Jun 29th 2018

    Having been out of trains for a while, II am building an N scale layout. All new equipment and most of it comes from Model Train Stuff. They have great prices on excellent equipment.

    Im new to DCC, but at the moment ive had bad luck with these decoders. One was DOA, and other other died after I changed the address in it. Contacint Digitrax support for help.

    Digitrax DN163A0 Plug-N-Play decoder

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 29th 2018

    Had to enlarge the slots on two Atlas C-630 locomotives for the board to fit. Most likely a dimensional error in the cast frame and not the thickness of the decorder board.

    Digitrax Plug -n-play decoders

    Posted by Greg - Melbourne, Australia on Jun 29th 2018

    I ordered and received four decoders, three of which were for my N scale Alco H-15/16-44's. I managed to correctly fit two before breaking the motor contacts on the third. I will purchase a new motor from Atlas and fit the third. As for operation, these decoders provide exceptionally smooth speed control as well as rule 17 light control. I am operating a Digitrax Zephyr Extra DCC system on a layout wired for DC block control and these loco's run extremely well with these decoders.

    Used to DCC 2 x B23-7's, 1 x B36-7 and 2 x GP38's. All went smoothly. Kapton insulating tape provided with product has a shelf life and can loose it's sticky over time.
