    Is it impossible to get an RS-1 or 3 with DCC? I noticed atlas doesn't even have them that are DCC ready. Does anybody carry these with DCC installed or at least ones that are DCC ready?

    I have a atlas Classic RS-1 in SP&S black Scheme, and as far as I know, their is no drop in method for the decoder instlation, but IIRC, I think the motor is isolated from the frame by a plastic cradle, But I am not sure, overall I do remember that it will require either removing one of the lightboards to make room for the decoder, or milling out a spot for the decoder.

    After looking around on the Net. I see that Kato has new RS-2 units with split frame for "drop in" DCC decoders.
