I bought the Märklin E60 (37562) used. The former owner equipped the E 60 with bell-armature can motor and Esu LokPilot V4.0 decoder.

I added the decoder buffer circuit with 1st 470µF capacitor, later I changed the configuration to a 1.200µF capacitor:

Moritz,

one of my next jobs will be adding led's to my Roco (Tillig) double decker coaches and I will be using my Märklin DB BR 143 to haul the coaches.
I make the led strip myself and with open interiors I use reflector strips and place the led's within. the other new option I've noticed with ESU Version 4 decoders you have an added light function (neon lights) I first seen it on a SBB ICN train and looked cool.
my interior lights are divided into 2 circuits (Aux 1 + Aux 2) and I use Roco 4 pin electrical couplings. I use the 4 pin as follow: Aux 1 (green wire) = Function 1, Aux 2 (violet wire) = Function 2, red wire = centre contact, bleu wire = common wire )Led's.
I configure the Aux 1 and Aux 2 in such a way, Aux 1 = random spots including the 2 toilets and marker light, Aux 2 = the rest of the random arrangements of led's in the carriage, I also miss some apartments and Aux 2 is mainly switched on when approaching a station.

Hi Moritz,

Thank you for posting the photos of your very interesting V60.

Do you think the running quality justifies the efforts of the previous owner?

Best Regards
Ashley

Hi Ashley,
I'm not sure, if I would have done the conversion. I was very surprised last weekend, that my E60 doesn't pull much waggons. But maybe, I just have to change the rubbers.

But of course, the loco drives very smooth, very silent. On the other hand, because of the missing space, there is no flywheel mass possible, which would give more underrun.

I payed ~160€ incl. conversion and Esu LokPilot V4.0. I think it was worth the money.

Moritz
