Dual Motor Tyco C630 or SD24 total build and DCC prep
Preparing Tyco Power Torque Locomotives to use 2 motors
Quite a while back I scored a Dual Motor Golden Eagle Super 630 from ebay.
Today I'm going to rebuild it and get it ready to accept a DCC controller.
Some of the considerations are:
1. Total rewiring and adding a small PC board where the DCC decoder will go.
2. Making sure the motors are not fighting each and travel in the correct direction.
3. All new interior wires.
Power Torques are very easy to rebuild. They are far more robust and powerful than most people give credit to them. They are often derided as being terrible motors, but the reality is quite different.
Wiring is quite simple, so this project was a total success. It turns out that 2 motors on a Tyco are way better than just one.
