Kato 10-594 E231 set...
« on: July 07, 2014, 07:12:45 PM »
Hi all, I have a chance to buy this set which is described as DCC friendly.
Can anyone tell me how many decoders are needed and if the decoders are readily available for U.K. running ? :searchingsign:

Not sure how many decoders you will require but they do decoders for Kato here on this page just scroll down to Kato N Gauge.

I haven't done an E231, but Kato stuff that's "DCC Friendly" normally needs Kato's own decoders:

Kato 29-351 DCC Decoder EM13 for the power car
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Kato-29-351-DCC-Decoder-EM13-for-powered-car-N-scale-/121293288964?pt=Model_RR_Trains&hash=item1c3da4b604

And Kato 29-352 DCC Decoder FL12 for both of the end cars
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=121372434705

That's 3 decoders in total, I'm not aware of any UK stockists but I get them from PlazaJapan and it takes around 2 weeks for the parcel to arrive :thumbsup:
