    I've been under a rock for a while, but have purchased a brass locomotive with a lenz decoder professionally installed. Lenz claims that the decoder may be operated in standard DC mode, but does not provide examples how to facilitate this. Does the receiver identify the current as DC and switch automatically?

    Regards

    My understanding is that that is usually the case. Some decoders have a CV that can be set to disable this ability.
