Decoder for Proto SW9/1200 : LUSENET : Wiring for DCC : One Thread

I have a new Proto 2000 SW9/1200 switcher that has no DCC plug. Life Like state in the instructions that due to the small sixe of this engine no plug could be installed. They show how remove the weight for a decoder.

Anyone who has installed a decoder in this engine would you pass on your decoder choice and any helpful suggestions for replacing the weight.

NCE make one specifically to clip in place of the pc board. You can see it here and you can download the manual that tells how to fit it.
