    Hi all;

    I have four Atlas Classic locos (2 GP-7, 2 RS-3) locos that I have purchased NCE DASR decoders for. My question is, does anyone know what voltage their stock headlight bulbs are; should I replace them with Miniatronics to prevent bulb burnout (such as one would do with Life-Like P2K)? I'd rather put bulb money towards more decoder money, if y'all know what I mean... Many thanks in advance;

    Jim

    Jim-
    The bulbs are 12v. I have installed decoders in a few Atlas loco's
    without changing the bulbs and have had no problems.
