Good morning to you all!! Hope you are all keeping safe.
Thank you for your help and support and pointing me to the correct forum pages I have managed to convert the analogue loco into a digital one.
I have used an ESU LokPilot 5 DCC decoder for the conversion.
AUX1 = smoke unit. I took it off but can't remember where it is. Although this is still the analogue one. The output for this is 250 mA so am not sure if it will lbe enough to power the smoke unit

AUX2 = light above the wheels. Had a spare bulb in the spares drawer and decided to give it a go. Cool effect.
No lights on the tender though.

The engine works perfectly and silently. I will have to tune it better on the layout as soon as I have set it up :-)

Thank you
Marco

On top of this, after painting the shiny magnet black, I also retouched, here and there, some of the scratched parts of the body work. It came out nicely.
