Hey
I wondered if anyone had played with one of ICE toy trains? There is an upgrade kit which I guess is more powerful motors. Are they 3 wire or 4? I think it would be cool to get one running on my DCC setup. Any thoughts?

LGB ICE liquidated!
You need the LGB 66095 upgrade kit with an extra motor block and lights for you dummy.

The upgrade kit for the ice train is a complete motor block for the rear dummy engine and 2 sets of lights, 1 for each end unit.
Not really needed for a 3 car set.

And all I have seen were 4 wire.

Ah.. So I'm not a "dummy"!?! What do you mean "liquidated"? Yes I gathered the retrofit was a nice addition. The key bit here is 4 wire vs three motors so DCC could be done fairly easily I guess. But is it worth it? Nice train? Does it melt....?
