  • Back EMF Load Compensation for superior slow speed control even with heavy loads.
  • Drop in style decoder for easy installation.
  • Sunny White LEDs
  • Decoders are almost transparent on DC, making the engine act like a decoder isn't there. Brake on DC allows you to control the lights while the train is in a DC block.
  • Quiet Drive is active at all times.
  • Dither provides rapid bursts of power to overcome resistance. You control both the power and frequency. See slow speeds unequalled in the industry.
  • Lighting Effects: Auto-reversing headlights, Mars, Gyra, Rotary Beacon, Single- and Double-Pulse Strobe, Opposite Dim, Flashing and Random flicker. Rule 17 headlight dimming can be set to occur when stopped, opposite the direction of travel, or both. You always have manual control.
