Is it possible to put a decoder in 46207 4x4 High Railer?

It should be, but it will be a tight fit.  I have not done one, but it appears a tiny decoder like a Digitrax DZ125 would fit.  The hardest part will probably be keeping the wiring neat enough that you can still put the unit back together.

Just a reminder that a decoder is not a panacea for poor running.  Make sure your high railer is running well before starting to install a decoder.

If there really is not enough room inside the body for a decoder, here are two other thoughts - either build a small trailer for your high railer and hide the decoder in a crate or tool box on the trailer or put the decoder on top of the roof and disguise it with a tarp to look like a roof load.
