    Hi

    I have a few HobbyTrain N Scale Locos.

    H4083, a steamer

    and a few Taurus Models

    Anyway, I'm putting in Lenz Gold mini + decoders, because I got them on sale!

    2 questions

    1) For motor control, they want motor type 0-5, but I can't find any reference, for what a motor type is - ANY reference,or idea

    I did find this on another of my favorite forums. But it leaves question 2

    2) Lighting intensity is 0-255 Other decoders give ranges, for LED vs incandescent. But again, I cant find said ranges, for this decoder. I have he manual, in english. it doesn't help.

    THANK YOU

    Never mind. I did some research. The specific decoder has a "meh" reputation, for motor control. I'm gonna swap it out.
