Heh! Heh! I have to laugh. What about those companies who offer "DCC Fitted" or "DCC Onboard" and fit capacitors and state that you can operate your loco on both DC and DCC layouts. What are the implications of removing the capacitor in these circumstances for DC use even if one is not required for DCC?
You would suggest leaving the capacitor in place in such a circumstances?
And if you have no intention of running on DC would you susggest removing the capacitor?
And what about those companies who offer decoders which can permit your loco to run on both DC and DCC? If you fit one of these and you do run your loco on both DC and DCC layouts what is the capaciter position then?
Would you suggest leaving the capaciter in place or removing it regardless?
I do seriously want to clear this up once and for all and have an answer that is consistent for all conditions and circumstances irrespective of decoder manufacturer!
Is this actually possible?
Please answer "Yes" if a 100% definitive answer can be given that leaves no room for doubt and that can be offered up in the form of a logic table.
Or "No" if it is down to performance criteria and the answer is not 100% black and white but a shade of grey.
