Pete, does the loco have a "D" in the bottom gearbox cover, or any stickers?

Trying to determine if a 3 wire or 4 wire motor block. (4 wire much easier to DCC).

Thanks, Greg - 16

No idea - I'll have to ask the owner.

A picture of the bottom of the loco, close up will do...

(also for any loco, a picture of the wheels and skates is very helpful)

Thanks, Greg

That's what I asked for. May take a day or two.

a "D"?

as far as i know, the "D" indikates on LGB stuff, that they are with "Dampf" = smoke generator.

Korm, a "D" in the part number means smoke.

The "D" impressed on the gearbox cover (as clearly stated in my post) means "Digital Ready", basically at least a "4 wire" gearbox as opposed to the "3 wire"... more information here:

No reason to repeat it all here... not a perfect test alone... just trying to get clues on the DCC conversion effort.

Greg - 11 - final countdown anyway...

Thanks Pete, looks like it is pretty old, January 1995, and no clues for a 4 wire motor block, so a bit more difficult for us DCC guys.

Probably made of the best plastic ever though, in the days of quality.

Greg - 2 to go
