QUOTE (dwb @ 15 Sep 2008, 18:43) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>In that case any mail order company who sends me a "Fitted" instead of a "Ready" will get it straight back. There are reasons why I choose to buy "Ready" locos:

1) I like to take advantage of "higher" end features such as ABC braking and RailCOM
2) I like to be able to add sound decoders easily


When you buy DCC fitted locos ask if if it is a hardwired installation or plug in as i purchased a class 66 and was charged more than a hardwired installation fee for the seller to remove the body and fit a 6 pin decoder in minutes
something you can do yourself very easily the hardest part removing the body.

Apart from any repercussions i would name the seller needless to say i would never reccomend /use them again, and would add they are nothing to do with the forum here.

The lesson a quick mail can save you in the long run, especially if like me you didnt know much about DCC at the time.
