Union Mills Locomotives are superb on DCC. The metal cast chassis ensures good pickup contact which is the main prerequisite for good DCC running. Micro decoders can be fitted in the tender above the motor by milling away part of the tender shell. There is an alternative locating the decoder in the cab but this extends the wiring between cab and tender and the decoder is of course visible. Locating above the motor retains the locomotive in the originally intended configuration when manufactured. The models are not suited to sound conversions because of the limited tender space and cast boiler section. They are a very worthwhile addition to any DCC layout where you are looking for smooth running and good control at low throttle.
