Jerry, if you don't have a checker for continuity you can make one with a AA

battery and 1.5v bulb. I don't recall if the Atlas FP7 needs isolation or

not. Chances are if it's a Roco drive, then it does. It won't have a plug,

so you should be able to see take it apart and see...............Tim

The motor should already be isolated as the trucks are plastic do not feed

power directly to the frame. The DH121 should work fine if you can find

room for it. If not ,one of the Atlas/Kato PC board type decoders should

fit nicely.
