Back to Basics

I've added a DCC article on getting Back to the Basics of DCC Installation.

Inspired by some people that were telling me that there was not enough info on installing decoders into locomotives that were not 'DCC Ready'.

This answers some of their questions and perhaps opens up a little debate.

Correct me if im wrong but have you got the red wire to the left hand rail pick-ups?
Hope so then Im not the only one


It's simply the way the diagram looks - it's a Lenz diagram & the associated instructions do say "red to right". In practice it makes no difference at all - the important ones are the motor connections if you want the locomotive to go forwards when selecting forwards.

The original question refered to pick up connections, not the track ones, hence my answer.
