Just acquired one, unused.

DCC ready? Will it run on analog?

What needs to be done to get it running on DCC?

Big sucker, my first six axle loco on my setup.  Very pretty (a CSX), nicely done.

As the unit comes it runs only on Analog DC...

The DCC ready means it has been designed to allow the fitting of a decoder - which means the design of the path the power takes to reach the motor is isolated and you can put a decoder in between without having to do any other alterations.

In this case you will need to solder the decoder in.

Decoders will operate both in DCC mode and in Analog DC.  (at least the recent ones now sold)

cheers
