2  Discussion Boards / HO / Adding a back EMF decoder to a DCC on board loco? on: April 09, 2012, 08:16:15 PM
I was looking at the B&O EM1 locomotive specs. It does not appear to have a back EMF decoder. Does it have a provision to "plug in" a back EMF decoder like the Lenz Silver  AND  a Sound decoder?

Thanks, John S.
Brunswick, MD.

I've aparently been away from this message board from some time. I'm sorry to hear about Steve's passing; this is quite a shock. Thanks G.G for keeping us in the loop.

He and his family will be in our prayers. Rest in peace brother.  Cry

It looked like something broke at the end of the third pull. Did anyone else see the sparks?

Sure sounded good spooling up.  Smiley
