Minitrix Selectrix Decoders and Digitrax?
now that I am living in germany, I am starting to install decoders in some of my european stuff, starting with one of my favorite locomotives:
(Image borrowed from http://ralfvolmer.ra.funpic.de)
Minitrix No 12633, Bought here in germany in 1999. the Instructions list SELECTRIX no 66830 as the plug and play Decoder for it, but I have no idea if the Selectrix decoders are compatable with the modern DCC/Digitrax systems.
so anyone have any one know if it'll work, or am I goting to have to adapt a modern decoder?

in short: They are not compatible.
See here for more info:
The 66830 is one of three standard selectrix decoders, and it is tiny.
Here is a link to the size description...
There are newer decoders on the market that allow a loco to operate on both, DCC and Selectrix.
Have a look at attached list: All Decoders with the Footnotes S), MS) or ms) are compatible with both systems:
I hope that helps
