    I'm new to DCC and I have a lot of older athearn diesels. Can I put DCC in them. Is it hard to do. What deocders do I use. And is there a step by step installation that I can find somewhere. Thanks

    One upgrade I would recommend is changing out the wheelsets from the original sintered iron to nickle silver>>>>
