NCE 5240110 SW9-SR HO Scale Walthers / Life-Like SW8 / SW9 / SW1200 Board Replacement DCC Mobile Decoder
(Dual Mode, will operate on DC)

This decoder is made to fit the Life-Like HO Scale SW8 / SW9 / SW1200 switcher. Easy installation exactly replaces the existing PC board in the locomotive. No need to remove the weight. The decoder provides a means to install a white LED or 12 Volt bulb as headlight. Because the 1.5 Volt rear light in this locomotive is difficult to replace we provide a dropping resistor right on the decoder. Three function outputs. Size: 0.100" thick - fits Proto 2000 SW8 / SW9 / SW1200.
