    Your fears are well grounded -- that voltage level is far too low, 13-14V (DCC) is what should be seen.

    Unless someone has a quick fix, I recommend contacting NCE. They may want to look at your...

    I agree with Heiko. There probably already is a current-limiting resistor there (LEDs are current-controlled devices).

    But you're engaging in a bit of a "hunt and hope" mission trying to...
