Dcc Power

I'll probably post this in Hobbies as well, but?

there are always knowledgeable folks here abouts.

I have some old DC locomotives, kits I built, that run smooth and are pretty nice engines.

Background emf aside, I do not want to run them on DCC power. Over time, they do not like it. So the question is, not wanting to upgrade to sound, how difficult is it to convert to DCC with the addition of a decoder for direction and lighting only?

I'm thinking a little solder here and there, maybe?

Thanks

.

I'm only telling you what I've read in the modelling mags but you must remember that although DC stuff WILL run on DCC, it doesn't do the motors any good because there is ALWAYS current running through them and it WILL make them overheat so unless you're prepared to convert them fully to DCC, only run them singly using a DC supply. The average decoder has up to eight connections AND of course you've got to find space for it in locos which have very little spare space due to the (usually) large size of the motor.
