Kato 3102 RhB DCC conversion - how?
« on: December 10, 2018, 07:51:32 PM »
Not sure if this belongs here or in the DCC section, but anyhow....

I’m the proud owner of a Kato 3102 Rhätishe Bahn Ge4/4-II loco. How do I convert it to DCC? I believe Kato stock needs specific Kato decoder pcb. I thought it would be a case of a quick Google, but my Google-Fu seems to be broken tonight as I’ve not found anything sensible...

Thanks

Thanks very much :)

And if you're not a fan of digitrax you could go with the equivalent TCS decoder (Train Control Systems) K7D4. I personally prefer the TCS decoder over digitrax by miles.

These guys also sell Kato ready converted to DCC with sound as well.....I am surprised that Kato is a bit behind the market with DCC
