Gentlemen,

Is a LGB 55022 Mini Decoder suitable for use in a LGB 2017 Starter set engine? Don't have any literature for the 55022 so I don't know what is rated for...

Thanks,

Ed

This decoder is a .8 amp motor max rating and .1 amp for front and rear lights and the 55022 is limited to 1 amp total max.

LGB manual states it is a single motor decoder!!

Dan,

Thanks for the info. I have one but no info. Don't know what amperage a little loco draws with a couple of light cars. Sounds like I might need to do some testing unless someone has some info on the little starter locos. Don't want to burn the decoder out.

Thanks,

Ed
