DCCUK Logo Install Header

 
Last updated 11 November, 2016

This page is designed to help those starting to use DCC in UK produced ready to run (RTR) locos available from the major model manufacturers in 4mm, HO and OO scales. Clicking on a loco type will take you to the link which illustrates how to install a decoder in that loco. Whilst each installation uses a particular decoder there may be a number of other suitable decoders that could be used for that loco - it is the method employed in the installation that is important. Where there is further information available about CV settings for specific loco/decoder combinations there is an asterisk - click on the asterisk to take you to the page where this information is stored.

Where an entry is in italics this means that the link is not currently available but will be reinstated as soon as possible. Entries followed by a (V) indicate a video installation guide, those with (S) indicate a sound installation.

For a general video guide to installing lighting into a loco see this link.

If you are installing a Bachmann 36-553 or 36-554 decoder and are having problems getting the loco to respond correctly click here for some guidance on CV settings. If you are installing a Hornby Turntable and want guidance on how to make it DCC compatible, click here.
