Simon Kohler of Hornby has told Hornby Magazine that "The T9 is a very light model, so the boiler will be made from metal rather than plastic. The DCC decoder will be in the tender, due to lack of space inside the boiler, which will make the fitting of a DCC decoder simple"
Hornby have also said that indeed all the fresh steam locos this year will have DCC plugs fitted in tenders to simplify DCC conversion
