The decoder is already plugged into the locomotives that are included with the Select based train sets, however they do have to be fitted to all locomotives that are intended for use with the Select or Elite digital unit. Many of Hornbys locomotives have a socket positioned internally to accommodate the decoder, however some do not and the basic instructions are included with the Select as well as the Elite and go someway to illustrate how to fit the decoder to those locomotives that do not have a decoder socket. The decoder is capable of picking up the signals from the Select and the Elite and converting them into actions which includes moving forward and reversing at a determined speed, stopping and starting and in some instances if fitted, switching the locomotives lights on and off. The decoder is also capable of keeping the locomotive running at a set speed no matter what gradients the model encounters.
