I know this is isn't O scale, but it relates as MTH used the same boards in DCS.
I have one of the original G scale hudsons, which has the 5V system. Along with a newer one that is missing the engine board (3V) Can I take the 5V board and put it into the 3V wiring system? And replace the battery with a battery eliminator. Would I have to rewire the entire engine to 5V?
