The Desert Hog goes DCC
the RRR desert hog received an elder small Arnold decoder to run digitally through Lonesome Dove. The following pictures are showing this relative easy conversion:

The left side of the pig. The insulation bewtween the power pick up and the motor brushes is done by a thin strip of tape. The red cable is soldered to the power pick-up, the orange on to the brush.







The right side with a similar way of cable connection. The decoder just snugs into the room where the capacitor has been.







Due to the wide and elastic shell there is no problem to put the shell back in place over the new installation.
