    The decoder lives up to my expectations with Digitrax. Installation was as easy and took only a couple of minutes. The motor control is excellent and the decoder programs very easily. The lights are very bright. So bright I need to paint the inside of my Intermountain SD40T-2 black.

    Easy as Pie installation for a digitrax DN16310

    Posted by Alamosaman on Jun 29th 2018

    I bought this decoder to install in an Intermountain SD40T-2. Easy as pie, this went in without a hassle. As it was my third one of this type, I found it easy and the decoder worked a dream first time!

    These decoders can be problematic when installing in an Intermountain Tunnel Motor SD40-2T. The decoder is supposed to fit in slots in the frame halves above the motor. These slots have been engineered too tightly in the first releases of this model. It is very difficult to get the corner pads on the decoder board to fit in these slots without widening them. You have to be quite conservative when doing this or you might widen the slots too much and you will not not have a good connection between decoder and frame. Use a fine grade narrow sanding wheel on a Dremel Moto-Tool. Do a little at a time. Make sure the motor is not in the frame when you do it so you won't get filings where they don't belong. Also very important: make sure the motor tabs are in good contact with the metallic pads on the underside of the decoder or you won't be able to program the decoder – it will run in DC, but won't budge in DCC.
