Proto 2000 Engines Manufacture

Jim poses this question for readers:

“Another of those questions that was sparked previous to a purchase. I saw a number of HO Scale Proto 2000 engines (different types in original boxes) and when looking at the guts of a few of the engines, I saw wires to a PCB. The question becomes; are all Proto 2000 engines DCC? If not, why is there a PCB on the top of the weight in any of the engines?”

Please comment below if you can assist Jim.

    All P2K engines do not have DCC plug. Many have DCC plugs but most do not. Some P1K’s have the plug. The only way I know of DCC ready loco is the box will have “Limited Edition” on the flap (top of box) Cheers, J B🚂
