Re: Dual Mode? DCC/DC

Duff & Polly M

I must take back part of my previous post.  Upon closer examination, the Bachmann SD40-2 is standard DC, although it appears that the motor may be isolated.  Wires from the trucks go to a simple circuit board, which appears to distribute power - both pos and neg -  to the motor and the lamps; no measured conductivity from either to the frame.  That may be a simple, but not necessarily low cost, conversion.  If so, I will make this locomotive dedicated, as I previously mentioned.
