Only thing I would suggest are that you make sure you remove the choke (inductor) and capacitor or you will have issues when running. A Zimo MX617 fits nicely onto the cab roof, but as I said a fairly easy job.

Ah, I was fine until you wrote that. I'm not exactly sure what the inductor is although I can probably find the capacitor.  What effect do they have on the running and what exactly am I looking at?

They destroy the DCC signal, or at best severely attenuate it and loco running will be very poor.

 

It depends on the age of the model you are converting as to whether it just has a capacitor or it also has the coil fitted. It is obvious especially as what you need to do is connect the red and black leads to the pickups and the orange and grey to the brushes with nothing in between :)
