Due to speculation on various web forums, Bachmann have clarified the type of decoder to be factory fitted to forthcoming releases.

The recently announced 3 function decoder with Back EMF (2 digit addressing only) is indeed the fitted item!

I thought this is what would happen. I'm with MMAD on this. I said on RMWeb that you could end up with a decoder that you didn't want. I know you'll still be able to (we hope), buy a loco' without a decoder, but why not put a half decent one in, in the first place

The irony of Bachmann using a shit decoder in their UK product must be a reflection on how they precieve the UK DCC market. The reason I say this is that they use ESU Lokpilot decoders in their Lilliput stuff and they are pretty good decoders. Same company why the difference?

I wonder too.
