Can anyone advise me which DCC decoder  do I purchase to change my Bachmann CHina CRH3 trainset to DCC?

thanks

Graeme

I do not have the CRH3, but all of my other Bachmann China models have the 8-pin plug for the decoder.
Without seeing inside for space available, I would guess at a standard harness/plug decoder like a Digitrax DH123P would fit

Thanks for ththe quick reply. I did manage to catch and print a msge with pics on how to do it which appeared on the Bachmann China forum . But its all in Chinese. However, the driving unit is the dining car - the centre of five cars with plenty of space. The images show an eight pin connector but not what is on the other end in the way of the decoder. The only instructions on the accompanying paperwork state " remove the dummy plug in the dining car and install the ddcc compatible decoder."
I will do a search for the Digitrax DH123P.

thanks
