Default DCC Conversion

Hi all,

My dad, who models in N, wants to convert a couple fo his old locos to DCC. As far as he can tell he needs DiGihats to do so, but he can't seem to find any available. Would anyone have any idea where he could lay his hands on some?

Thanks

They have been for months and we can't get an answer from them to find if/when they'll be back in stock

So we've found out, it's very frustrating. My dad's got a lovely little GF 08 shunter that he can't run since he's changed over to DCC

Read on another forum that Digitrains simply use heat shrink on the brass brush holder.

Thanks for the replies chaps, we've finally had an email from DCCsupplies saying they'll be announcing this week when they'll be back in stock, so fingers crossed
