Bachmann LMS crab - decoder space

Could anyone advise if there is sufficient space within the Bachmann LMS crab to fit a Bachmann 36-553 decoder?

Re: Neptune Street

Andy,

Sorry for the delay. This is a scale drawing of the layout which was done to check things fitted in. Needless to say they didn't and there have been several changes, however the main running lines are as planned.
