Just picked up the Hornby mixed goods digital set and THIS a Bachmann class 25 Diesel. Now, as I understand it, I need a decoder to make it work with the digital setup. My question is, what decoder do I need? I notice in that link it mentions a 21 pin DCC decoder 36-554. If I fit that is that all I need for it to work on the Hornby digital mixed goods set??

Oh and can anyone recomend any good shops around the Romsey area?

Many thanks,

Any 21 pin DCC decoder will do. Bachmann naturally advertise their own, but there are alternatives from other manufacturers. (You also have the options of getting a 21 to 8 pin adaptor, so that any decoder with an 8pin plug - of which there are a very large range - will fit; or significantly altering the wiring and soldering in a decoder.)

As for what model shope are in your area
