How to use the 74461 switch decoder from Märklin with DCC

I have a bunch of Trix C-track that I use on a regular basis. It allows me to build whatever I want and since the program includes long points, it allows me a somewhat decent looking temporary layout. I like the C-track a lot, I think it is much better than the alternatives from Roco and Fleischmann. A temporary layout is quickly built and quickly removed when not needed anymore. A few months back I bought some switch-motors to use with my C-track and my Lenz digital switch-decoder. Getting Started The switch decoder is meant for the C-track, meaning that it will not make much sense to you, if you do not use the C-track. The decoder comes in a package with a few additional cables for installation. Mounting the decoder is easy and you can do most of it simply by looking at the picture in the instruction book. Programming Using the Decoder Here is the simple part.

Verdict Happy modelling!
