Digitrax Decoder SW9/SW1500

Finally in stock, ordered mine today. When converting an SW9, just swap the motor contacts top to bottom. This will bring the bottom motor contact to a point above the frame to allow you to solder to. Be sure to insulate the contact from the frame sides. Njoy

What gauge are the wires in the SW1500 that are used to connect the motor to the light board (and  the decoder)?  I don't have an SW1500 handy to disassemble and check, but want to know what will plug into those little sockets on the light board.

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

Has anyone found out what the additional solder pads on this decoder are for? I am looking to put a rear light in the loco and was hoping that these pads may be additional function pads. I looked on the Digitrax web site but got no where.  :x

Digitrax has a Tech Support article showing the function pads.  In the Tech Support Depot, search for KB1025.
