Installation and Programming of NMRA-DCC-Decoders

General Information

Sample Installations

These are some reports and pictures of decoder installations, but sorry -- nearly all in german. They are not only meant as direct procedure for a special type but also as general guidelines. For easy finding the reports are collected in a table. The link under the loco type leads to the installation report, the one under the decoder type to the corresponding web page of the manufacturer. The table is sorted by the type number used since 1968 independent from the individual prototype era. Links to similar lists with decoder installations are found at the bottom of this page.
