  1. I came home from Japan with a bunch of EM13 decoders and an 800 and Sunrise. The shopkeeper that I could install DCC on the trains and I presumed that it was a drop in EM13 like all the other trains. When I got home and opened it up I was met with a surprise which was that there was no drop in. Can I hardwire to EM13 to the pickups or do I need to get another decoder?
  2. Hello all, recently I picked up a pair of Kato 285-series sunrise express sets and though they haven't arrived yet, I'm already planning on making some modifications. The biggest and most visual will be the addition of a diaphragm and open doors on the end cars of the -0 and -3000 series sets. I know the Kato Shop Osaka used to sell a set of these cars with the diaphragm already installed, but I just can't justify paying that much for it, and it seems like an easy thing to do myself. My questions are what would be the best way to cut the doors out of the front of the cars? Would anyone know the proper diaphragm parts to order, like the ones shown in these pictures? Anything else/any more info that would help with this project would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all for viewing and your assistance! ~Phillip
