      DCC in a rail bus.

      Ok, I have a TCS G8 decoder in hand, and a HLW rail bus on the way. Has anyone here put DCC into on of these? Or something similar?

      Any tips or tricks?

      I did a battery conversion on mine using a Rail Boss 4, My Loco Sound and a Li-ion battery pack. It all fit into the baggage compartment.

      Alright. It lives.
      Right now only the rear track pickups are hooked up.
      Left to do...
      Disconnect dcc board
      Lengthen wiring
      Hook up motor/rear track pickups/front track pickups
      Figure out how to hook up lights
      Mount board
      Reassemble rail bus
      Program as needed
