    I'll get 1000x better photos and video tomorrow with natural daylight.
    between the flash and shadows and poor lighting, well, these are mostly aweful.

    Looks nice, but is it DCC compatible?

    shodul be, they are going ot be offering them with DCC - that run is coming a little later. these were just released.

    btw, what is NOT DCC compatible? and why?
    As long as there is room in the loco or tender or a boxcar behind for a decoder, then just Isolate the motor and wire in a decoder.

    There arn't really wires to isolate on any newer locomotives, either. Isolating the motor simply means that it no longer comes in contact with either the frame or pick-up strips. That way, the decoder can take the full voltage (up to ~16volts) from the track, and convert/regulate the power going to the motor. I don't know of any reason those Bachmann units couldn't be decoderized.

    Old European steam locos are the hardest to covert, but I have yet to see an N loco that I can't convert.

    DCC Friendly (or not) might be a better term...

    By the way, nice Goose Koz

    siderod & Bryan,
    Right, WHne people say, I'm selling my locos because I can't use DCC in them. I'm always like huh?
    as long as there is room somewhere or room cna be made (grind away metal, etc) then any can be.

    as for a Bachmann Diesel. I have never seem one that I wodul both with a decoder in, much less one from a starter set. put that one on the plywood reinforced kato loop in the christmas tree - incase it hits the floor.
    but I bet it can be DCC if you want it to be.

    for DCC
    1) you need to make sure the motor sitting where it is at, does not get any power from the frame, wires or brass strips. - easy with tape or removing the wires, etc. a DMM (Digital MultiMeter) is you best friend here. they can be had for cheap from Sears, homedepot all kinds of places. just make sure there is not conductivity between motor and frame, wheels, etc.
    2) then you need to get the power picked up from the wheels to the 2 power supply wires of the decoder. the mfg allready does this and ther is usually a tab, pad, wire, etc coming from each side of each truck. you want power from the front and rear trucks in a diesel. loco & tender in steam.
    3) then wire the 2 motor wires from the decoder to the motor.
    done.

    then lights, etc from there if you want.

    all very basic electrical work.
    4 wires to have a running loco.

    hardest thing is probably figure out where the decoder can fit in smaller stuff and any grinding. I run mostly Steam, so there is almost always a tender.

    OK, you're right, I suppose DCC friendly would have been a better term. However all that grinding and removing, and then something touching the frame and ruining the decoder type fun sounds more like work...

    How did you take those great photos? A special macro lens or what?
    Anyway, you did a terrific job.

    thanks.
    Just a point and shoot Canon 7.1MP digicam!
    no retouching, only crop.
    I wwas surprised with the little built in flash and all they turned out that good. especially with flash in a dark room.
    I had a Sony Digicam. I hated it, had to retouch adn never looked as good as this Canon.
    Canon is #1

    oh come on, not that hard.
    only a little grinding - if even needed. most do not need grinding. you can even buy frames ready made to swap out.
    touching the frame? just use a $20 DMM and check before powering up.
    Ruining a decoder? so what, if you are clumsy use Lenz decoders with their no questions asked warranty. they exchange it even if you wreck it.

    photo they too big? for this forum?
    No one complained about the size on Atlas forum. :mrgreen: I could just remove them and post a link to there, but I figured someone here would complain about that, so I posted all the photos here too.
    all that work and they still compain. maybe I'll just post on atlas forum from now on. :razz:

    They are compressed jpgs and not that large.
    the page loads all the photos in about 4 seconds.

    (1024 on one of them)

    It's not so much a "complaint" as a friendly hint to be considerate of other members that may not be fortunate to have the hardware that you do...
    Any images that are dramatically wider than 800, I usually change from [img] to [url]... so the fact that these have been left, must say something...

    Oh, and am I to take it that lack of consideration for others is an accepted hallmark on the Atlas Forums :P

    wow, nasty mean. :shock: :roll: :wink:
    I was here long before I was at Atlas.
    I don't see any attitudes at Atlas, other than the usual rivit counters that are everywhere and clueless to reality, attitudes sounds more like a select couple of people at trainboard.

    if you can't spend the effort on the scroll wheel to scroll? then don't look?
    a 19" LCD monitor is only like $150. Try running 1280x1024. nice and HiRes for graphic design, etc nice large desktop to work, etc.
    Photos need to be large to show details.
    I never complain about large photos unless they are like 2000pixels wide.
    I bet most all were under 800 from memory. migh tbbe one or so over. whoop te do. sheesh.
    Change what you feel you must. it's your board.

    Looks like another winner from CC. Looks like 4 wheel drive/pickup. Could there be enough TE to add small boxcar?

    I think my little RR needs a critter! I'd set one up to move the "boss" around, with a "training school bus".

    Good idea to leave the snowplow on till all the snow melts.
