    I recently bought a mantua 2-8-2 heavy mikado with custom DCC sound. Sadly some problems have been showing up. The main one being is "popping" with the sound. And also I dont know what the decoder is. If you can help me fix and locate the problem thank you!

    Are you sure what brand this is? Not sure when Mantua made a 2-8-2. HO or N? Check the decoder for a brand name. Most are marked some-how. Maybe even a model number. More info needed.

    Ok update 2, the decoder is yellow and is 10 or 9 pin I cant see, also it's not digatrax because it doesn't have 2 places to hook up pins. Anyway, I thinking just about replacing it and I can find a good option.
