HO Discontinued DCC

DCC Information

To isolate the motor brushes on an OLD Bowser DC-71 motor (Old DC-71 had only one wire and half the brush plate is brass)
a new brush plate (#22193) required to replace the brass plate on the motor.


All our kits using the DC-71 motor have the DCC compatable motor.
Skew wound armature, straight polished shaft, new magnet material, double insulated brushes for easy DCC.
I like an O Scale DCC module for Bowser Steam Locos. They will fit in the tenders.

Empire Northern Models
D12IP manufactured by NCE exclusively for Empire Northern Models
MSRP: $19.99
for EMD F Unit, EMD FT's, Baldwin AS16/616/RS12, Alco Centuries, & GE U25B


This decoder was co-developed Empire Northern Models, Stewart Hobbies and NCE primarily for use in the Stewart locomotives. Our vision was to make a lower cost version of the Integrated Plug
style decoder that would be very easy to use and fit the need of most modelers. The D12IP has all the options and functions you have come to expect from any of the NCE decoders like Silent Running and Full FX. This decoder will fits nicely into many of today's current production locomotives from Stewart, Kato, Atlas, Intermountain, LifeLike and many more.
