Does anyone know if there is a decoder specifically designed to fit under and operate a 'C' track uncoupler? I've seen a you tube video of someone fitting one but can't find any info' on it.

Sorry this is not that answer you were looking for but its worth a look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IC8hLZSDUq4

I personally use a K83 Decoder in conjunction with my ESU Ecos 50200.

Hi
In the Märklin range there is no decoder to fit under the C rails except the normal switch decoder and triple switch decoder.
When Märklin released their first mega digital starter kit (2602 around 1989) it included a digital uncoupler (a full size M rail).
In case you want to have a carpet train you can hide a switch decoder in a rail attached to the uncoupler rail.
For all other purposes I recommend a K83 unit

Thanks for the link, it's the one I saw, but I didn't read the comments. He made it himself. Blushing Blushing Looks like I have to buy the new version of K83.

Thanks Johnjean, That's a very nice layout you have there, I hope to get mine up to that standard one day. John.

Thank you John. There is no reason why you can't and do even better. I am not especially gifted.

I've ordered a M83 from Germany this afternoon, so we'll see how I get on. Cool Thanks for the advice John.
