So I'm sitting here with a very nice LGB 22470 rack engine in front of me - and no instructions. Can anyone please tell me how to get at the circuit board to fit a decoder?
Hi thereThis exploded parts diagram should help you get started:
It's for an earlier model but the basic construction hasn't changed.
I used to have one which had a decoder fitted but I had to open it up to add a Massoth S sound decoder, and I don't remember any particular difficulties. You don't need to disassemble the rather intricate rack and adhesion movements which is something of a relief.
oops! Pic wasn’t included. Thanks though Muns, that explains and the cable is what I’m after. Am I right to think the Massoth decoder will operate the front and rear lights directionally on F0. And would it need further programming to operate the cab light and smoke on separate functions?I do not see a pic!
But I would assume from your description that it has a 10pin DCC interface (the other 3 are used by the blanking plate only). If you dont want sound then a Massoth XL would be best (especially if you want to actually use it on a rack) with a 10 pin interface cable.
