I have a Bachmann 0-6-0 Steamer that is DC only. I want to convert it over to DCC. No sound is necessary. I want lights and forward/reverse in DCC. It would be nice to have an extra trigger to run the smoke unit and turn it off if I don't want it.
So my question is what Digitrax wire in decoder would be best for this? Can I get forward/reverse/lights and maybe an extra output for smoke unit?
And the last question is, since I have it apart, can I replace the light with an LED instead for front/rear? What light would be close to prototypical, what color, and what would be a radioshack part number for a front/rear LED?
Thanks a ton in advance. I know some people would say it's not worth it, but for the 30 bucks or so it would cost me to convert it would be cheaper than buying one already set to go. Plus I like this one and it's already weathered.
