OLD LOCO HELP !!!!!!!!!

2794 Views 19 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  harkins77
I have several N gauge Atlas EMD E8 lcos made in italy i would like to have converted to dcc, my problems with them are how do i make sure the motor is isolated form the chassis as it is mounted vertically directly over the bogie driving straight down, the motor casing touches the chassis for pick up and i am stumped
as to how to isolate it from the chassis there maye be enough space to wrap it in kapton tape if this would solve it,
Also how do i wire it for pick up to the track has anyone converted ether one of these or a similar loco as i am loathed to part with them as they are reliable runners.

Any help would be gratefully recieved.

Looks Good Nick. Seeing as your the master of all things small I can see some work coming your way from
But I bet they won't be staying that livery though Nick will they?

I see a yellow future ahead for your new purchases.
