Hi Train lovers, First of all, a very happy easter to you all, and I hope you all had a very nice easter weekend.:thumb: I have a question, Can anybody tell me how I can build a decoder into a Athearn locomotive? you know thoes with the great big strip of iron whitch goes from the rear pickup, over the motor and stops at the light in the front. The biggest problem is the one at the bottom of the motor, how do I insulate that one from the body. Has anybody ever done this and if so can you please tell me how it is done.:curse: Ernest.
