Re: fit DCC to piko loco

fit DCC to piko loco

Hi there, I have a 2002 piko german steam engine and I would like to fit a DCC chip in it.However there is a "choke" fitted below the motor, can I still fit a chip, can I discard the choke assembly, where should I connect my chip (orange/grey) motor wires to.
Any help or advice greatly appreciated.
