This page contains articles of different ways of converting a loco to run in the digital world...  Please note that some of the conversions require a multi-protocol control unit as the IntelliBox (IB) to run together with Märklin Digital locos since Lenz DCC decoders are used..  The articles are illustrated by pictures of the sessions.
