DCCUK Logo Install Header

Last updated 22 January, 2020

This page is designed to help those starting to use DCC in UK produced ready to run (RTR) locos available from the major model manufacturers in 2mm N scale. Clicking on a loco type will take you to the link which illustrates how to install a decoder in that loco. Whilst each installation uses a particular decoder there may be a number of other suitable decoders that could be used for that loco - it is the method employed in the installation that is important.

Where an entry is in italics this means that the link is not currently available but will be reinstated as soon as possible. Entries followed by a (V) indicate a video installation guide and those with (S) indicate a sound installation.
