Athearn rtr 9-44cw DEcoeder? What type is needed for the quick plug version of the athearn rtr dash 9. I want to buy a digitrax brand decoder. And since im getting the new loco in a couple of days i want the decoder so i can put it in when i get it.

I use the TC-1s from Train Control Systems. I don't do the ditchlights thing or anything else, so a minimal function decoder works for me.

But, if you want a more full-featured decoder, it takes the JST 9-pin plug.
