Here's a pic of a prototype GM GP35. I have an MTH model in O-Scale 2-Rail that runs great with my new Digitrax Zephyr DCC Controller. (Shown is the rear end of the engine)

The 5-pound loco has a switch enabling either the MTH DCS or the DCC decoder.

I didn't know their O scale did. Athearn's HO Ready to run DC with the quick plug DCC adapter were some of my first models I bought, still got them. Nice chunky little engines.

There is only one decoder in the engine. Switching the switch to “DCC” simply enables DCC functions.
