I have a misbehaving MTH SW-1500 diesel switcher with PS-2 sounds; it won't respond to track power and it won't accept signals from my DCS REMOTE COMMANDER device. Probably a burned-out chip or circuit board.
As I understand it, the MTH PS-3 sound set is much better, so I toyed with the idea of having this loco repaired and the sound system upgraded. Then I read info on this FORUM that the DCS REMOTE COMMANDER will be phased out as MTH moves toward WiFi and app configurations for loco control.
Since all my other locos are Lionel, I'm reluctant to invest in additional MTH DCS gear for the sake of just one loco. I'm wondering ... would it be feasible modify my SW-1500 diesel; i.e., remove its DCS electronics and install TMCC control and sound gear by ERR?
