Try a Digitrax DN 121 decoder. It should fit inside the Climax, and is able to withstand 1 amp current draw. Lenz also makes a decoder that will fit, but I can't recite the number off the top of my head. I have fit the DN 121 into old Roundhouse locomotives, older Bowser locomotives, and numerous brass locomotives with open frame motors, so I know they work.
