Yes, you can use the Lenz decoder, but as Zmil says the TCS is much more cost effective.

When converting FLM locomotives, if they have the old style 3-pole motor make sure that the motor itself is running 100%. Often they will run OK on DC but they really do need to be running sweetly for DCC.

QUOTE (mikewalder @ 8 Jan 2009, 22:55) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>The Lenz Gold works beautifully in the new FLM 5-pole skew wound tender drive models.

Although the Golds are good in the later FLM mechanism they are not quite so successful (in our experience) with the older 3-pole motors - on powering up they often "see" the motor as having a short & just sit there flashing the lights !
