DCC Flicker free lighting for IRM Ballast Plough

Question

Hi

Just wondering if anybody could help me. Is it possible to fit a capacitor to the circuit board  of the IRM ballast plough vans to help prevent light flicker and if so which contacts on the circuit board would I need to solder the capacitor to. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I fitted a capacitor to one plough van and it works perfect.When you take off the body look towards rear and the roof mounted board does have a + and - .Space is tight  and  you just carefully solder the + to + and - to -.I painted the capacitor yellow to hide it as best I can.

Also you will need to add a bit of wire from the capacitor to the board keeping them red and black.

Note doing this will invalidate your warranty on the Van's.The rear lights stay on for about 4-5 seconds even when taken off the track.

Hope this helps.
