Simple question (I hope):
I have an On30 2-6-0 Analog Locomotive.  I would like to upgrade it to DCC.  Is this possible and if so, which converter do you recommend?

Thanks for the quick response.  I am very comfortable with solder and the like and appreciate your suggestions.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion....
SoundTraxx is celebrating their 25th anniversary this year. They have a great track record of innovation and stellar customer support. They are currently expanding their facility and have some great new products on the horizon. That's why we recommend them.

The Soundtraxx sounds good enough for me:

Early steam doesn't require sophistication, it chuffs and the whistle blows.

from my "what I did":

Steam sound is more about the speakers than the decoder sounds, "bigger is better" in the form of two dissimilar speakers and use the tender body as the sound box not one of those "sissy" canister enclosures.
