My better half has bought me a new loco for Christmas but I’ve no idea how or where to fit the DCC decoder

And there was I thinking such a thread title indicated at the very least you’d superglued your fingers to the workbench. Shucks.

The locomotive has no bunker for fuel, are we to suppose that the fireman is to burn the presents int he first truck to raise steam ?!?!

Humour.

 

 

That might explain why I don't have any left.

Must be a fine scale model - no way will it go round train set curves with the lack of articulation between those wagons

Glue the decoder to the side of a wagon? You made no mention of wanting to keep it neat looking!

I would question the necessity to raise steam, as there are apparently no cylinders or motion to transfer tractive power to the driving wheels; indeed, it is not clear which are the driving wheels!

 

But the lack of a bunker is not a major issue as enough coal can be stowed in that large cab for most duties.  Presumably the water is carried in a well tank.  

 

Such locomotives and rolling stock have for more than a century and a half performed unsung but nonetheless heroic duties in playrooms, nurseries, and creches all over the world; I will not hear a word against them!

Haven't those trucks got different back-to-back measurements than those on the loco?

They felt that provision for coal would be unnecessary weight, given that they also provided no means for the crew to get into the cab.
